CMHO Evidence-Based Practices Consultation
Paper: Addendum

Interim Report on the Consultations

Province wide consultations were held with Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO) member agencies and key stakeholders to inform and discuss our future role in assisting service providers to implement evidence-based practices (EBPs) in child and youth mental health organizations. CMHO proposed the development of a Technical Assistance Center (TA Centre) to assist these service providers with the process. The consultations provided participants with the opportunity to discuss whether the proposed centre would support their needs, and to help establish priority areas and recommend next steps. Stakeholders were also able to provide feedback electronically by completing a questionnaire on SurveyMonkey.The following is a summary of the feedback received from the consultations to date, including the survey responses.
