Back to School: Mental Health, Addictions and Substance Use Health Resources

Back to school can be exciting for parents, children and youth, and can also heighten familiar challenges or introduce new ones. OCYI has placed the mental health of children and youth as a top priority in our present and future work. Together with our partners, we are here to offer support and resources to students and their families.


Aware that everyone has been affected by the pandemic in some way, OCYI wants to help all of Ottawa’s children and youth to have the healthiest and most successful school year possible. 


Please check out these resources, shared by OCYI’s network, and visit our social media accounts and website for upcoming events and information.
