Our partners

SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health is proud to partner and collaborate to build system capacity and clearer pathways to service for children and families.

The Sheppard site of SickKids CCMH offers free programs at the EarlyON Child and Family Centre for caregivers and children from birth to six years old. Programs and services help strengthen adult-child relationships, support parent education as their child's first teacher, and foster healthy child development.

The EarlyON program is funded by the Government of Ontario.


An innovative partnership between SickKids CCMH  and Centre francophone de Toronto, a non-profit organization providing services to the French-language speaking population of Toronto, provides mental health services for francophone children, youth and their families, from birth to 18 years, through their Espace Jeunesse program. Services are offered at Centre francophone de Toronto, located at 555 Richmond St. W., Suite 303 F, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3B1.

The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in downtown Toronto is the most-visited cultural institution in Canada with a robust Community Access Network program (ROMCAN). The ROM works with SickKids and SickKids CCMH to provide free general admission to groups from the agency in exchange for workshops and resources related to children’s physical and mental health and well-being.


The Sashbear Foundation is a registered Canadian charity founded in 2011. Through its free Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) skills-based Peer-to-Peer Family Connections™ program, Sashbear provides skills to families across Canada who have a loved one suffering with mental illness.
Since February 2016, Sickkids CCMH has partnered with Sashbear in offering this evidence-based, manualized 12-session weekly DBT-informed skills groups to parents and caregivers at the Jarvis site. Sashbear is also piloting a Skills In Schools research study in SickKids CCMH high school classrooms, providing a 30-session social emotional learning curriculum based on DBT, delivered by trained TDSB teachers, in order to improve student’s mental health.

The Healthy Babies, Healthy Children program provides supportive home visiting to at‑risk families from the prenatal stage until the age of three in many different languages. Toronto Public Health nurses work together with family home visitors from SickKids CCMH and other agencies to support these families. Referrals are made through Toronto Public Health.
