A new and improved website contains information and links about mental health for children and youth.

Mental health help available for families, schools, and health professionals

Mental health and substance use website improves access to digital resources

The BC Children’s Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre has launched a new and improved website so families and school and health professionals can more easily find mental health and substance use information and resources to support children and youth.

The website — www.keltymentalhealth.ca — is a resource for everyone in British Columbia, a place where they can find information, tools, and services, including evidence-based supports, created by trusted health experts at BC Children’s Hospital.

The redeveloped website is more user friendly and offers new features, including:

• New sections for parents and caregivers, health professionals, school professionals, and youth and young adults, to help them quickly find relevant information and resources;

• Improved search functionality to help visitors easily find information and resources within the website;

• A new collection tool to help visitors save and share personalized collections of resources from the website; and

• Updated information and resources about mental health and substance use challenges and disorders, with content reviewed by clinical experts at BC Children’s Hospital.

Funding for the BC Children’s Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre website was provided by RBC through its Integrated Provincial Child and Youth Healthy Living Initiative.

Kelty Centre’s new Instagram account (@keltycentre) has been launched to complement information already provided through Facebook and Twitter, connecting followers to the latest resources and information on mental health and substance use in an accessible way.

In addition to the website, the Kelty Centre offers a variety of services so that children, youth, and families can find the help they need, when they need it, as close to their home communities as possible. This includes peer support services from trained young adults and parents with lived experience in child and youth mental health, through a collaboration with FamilySmart.
