About the Family Navigation Project
We are committed to supporting families and their youth in the path to recovery
and optimum functioning. Our promise to families is to engage with them to help
them navigate the health care and related services system, connect to
appropriate and credible assessment and treatment resources, receive assistance
in as timely a way as possible and negotiate challenging situations that may
arise, all the while knowing that help and support is available for them every
step of the way.
Our promise to the health care system is to help build relationships with
treatment providers, centres and programs that will facilitate connections for
families and youth. In launching this innovative model of care, we hope to
encourage positive change within the system.
Our mission statement
