Officially launched on Friday in Montreal, the ACCESS Canada project consists of a Canada-wide research network within the recently launched TRAM – Transformational Research in Adolescent Mental Health. Its goal is to use research evidence to bring about positive changes to the way we care for young people (age 11 to 25) with all forms of mental illness. It will seek to fix a gap in health care nation-wide by developing and implementing strategies to ensure more young people have quick access to youth-friendly and flexible mental health services.
