only 1 in 5 youth with a mental health illness get access to the care they need
~ Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Foundation
The RBC Children’s Mental Health Project has provided $20 million to nearly 330 programs since it launched in 2008 (via the RBC Foundation). Effective June 17, 2015, the Project has established a new grant strategy to improve service delivery by focusing on two funding areas where RBC can make the biggest impact:
- Navigation programs
that address youth’s immediate need to access services.
- Technology-based service solutions
that improve access to care
for youth in remote areas, or those who cannot access services in their local communities.
The foundation's goal is to remove barriers that prevent youth and families across Canada from getting the mental health care they need.
