Many of CHEO’s services for children and youth with mental health and special needs are scattered around Ottawa in buildings that are less than optimal and, in some cases, actually working against progress in treatments. Many of these kids and teens use numerous other services at the hospital as well. 

These families, 40,000 of them in the region, have many stresses – many simply around the fact of their children’s health. Providing this fractured model of service is not acceptable. These families deserve better. We have been working with the government toward a new building for nearly a decade. Now is the time for the government to put it in the budget so we can get shovels in the ground.

This Thunderclap is a show of force demonstrating to the Ontario government that there is strong support for a new building that will serve as a hub for mental health and special needs services. A building that is accessible, smartly designed for a wide range of therapies, allows for more coordinated care, and, most importantly, simplifies the lives of these overburdened families. Now is the time to show we care about some of our most vulnerable kids and teens.
