Child, Youth and Family Health and Mental Health Resources


The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) has launched a comprehensive website in response to the increase in demand for mental health services in children and youth in our area. Titled “I’m Glad You Asked!”, the site is moderated by two CHEO mental health experts, psychologist Dr. Phil Ritchie and psychiatrist Dr. Hazen Grandy. The Ottawa Citizen recently wrote an article with more information. To go to the CHEO Mental Health and Mental Illness in Children and Youth page, please click here or visit

The “I’m Glad You Asked!” section can be found by clicking on Ask the Experts on the left sidebar.
