PROMOTING CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH IN PRIMARY CARE

The Canadian Research and Education for the Advancement of Child Health (CanREACH) is dedicated to developing literacy in pediatric mental health literacy for primary care providers by offering training and education services. With a vision of healthy futures for children, adolescents and families in the Calgary area and beyond, the mission of CanREACH is to transform health care systems by educating and empowering primary care providers in creating and sustaining practice changes, congruent with the most up-to-date evidence based information in child mental health.

  • CME: CanREACH delivers an accredited 6-month mini-fellow licensed from The REACH Institute, “Patient-Centered Mental Health in Paediatric Primary Care (PPP)”

  • SUPPORT: CanREACH offers consultation to local participant alumni and has partnerships with various AHS and Community services.

  • RESOURCES: CanREACH provides localized web-based resources and training modules specific to primary care providers.
