This Is Us

FamilySmart® is not just about families. Whether you are a youth, young adult, family member or service provider, YOU MATTER to FamilySmart®. Our experiences with each other impact mental health outcomes of young people.

We are Together-Centred™ and it means that your experience, expertise, and contributions are acknowledged, respected and valued. You are all seen, and treated, as assets.

FamilySmart® comes along-side young people and families to provide support, navigation assistance and information and then invites them and professionals to come-alongside each other to learn with and from each other to enhance the quality of experiences and services for child and youth mental health.

It’s what makes us Together-Centred™
