Children and Youth Mental Health (CYMH)

This 3-year international partnership project between Canada and China will facilitate knowledge exchange and advancement through active engagement of academic and non-academic partners in both countries. The overarching goal is to develop user-focused initiatives to promote and intervene on mental wellness among children and youth (age 12 – 17) in both Canada and China. One of objectives of this CYMH project is to develop a gamified website to address child and youth mental health issue. This gamified website will be developed by the Mitacs intern through close collaboration with the named partner organization and active engagement with service users, parents/guardians and service providers. This community-university partnership will strengthen knowledge-base of the protective and risk factors impacting children and youth mental health in Canada and China as well as developing effective prevention and intervention that could overcome accessibility challenge due to geographical location.
