The Children’s Mental Health Project (CMHP) provides services and support to children (ages 7-15) and their families that address behavioural and mental health needs. There are five programs in Friendship Centres across Ontario; Fort Frances, Thunder Bay, Cochrane, Sudbury, and Niagara.  CMHP offers a “wraparound” approach to provide services that build community-based relationships and support networks between children and their families, teachers, and other caregivers. By providing a wholistic approach to healing that’s inclusive of the entire family, CMHP promotes the reduction of the potential outcome or occurrence of family violence. Client-based services/support will depend on the needs of the client, however can include service coordination, crisis intervention, advocacy on behalf of the client, referrals, peer counseling, and one to one activities.  Both clients and participants are invited to join in workshops, presentations, healing circles, talking circles, tradition based activities and recreational activities that are offered by the program.
