Child and Youth Mental Health Collaborative

Chilliwack & Fraser Cascades

Local Action Teams

Local Action Teams (LATs) are a key component in the structure of the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative. They provide the foundation for improving timely access to support and services for local children, youth and families experiencing mental health and substance use challenges.

Teams are comprised of a diverse cross-section of mental health and substance-use service providers, stakeholders, and youth and families from the local community.

How it works

Each Local Action team commits to tackling one or two key objectives within a particular timeframe to address system barriers in their community. A Collaborative Coach supports the team to help them successfully achieve their goals and measure their outcomes.

Local Action Teams have recently been formed in your area. More details regarding who’s involved in this community, and their improvement objectives will be added to this page shortly.
