Family Engagement

Family Advisory Committee

St. Clair Child & Youth Services (SCCYS) is pleased to support the Sarnia-Lambton Family Advisory Committee.  This group of family members with the lived experience of having a loved one who has been involved in the child and youth mental health system, are working to help make positive change in the system while supporting each other.  This effort is supported by SCCYS and Parents for Children's Mental Health Ontario.  This is an open committee to members of the community.  For more information please contact:

What is Family Engagement?

Family engagement is an active partnership between families and service providers. It can be an individual relationship between a clinician and a family, an organizational alliance between an agency and families in their community, or a systemic recognition of family-centred care. Regardless of the definition, when families are engaged, programs and services are stronger and young people are healthier.
