Dr. Johanne Roberge, Director of the Psychiatry Emergency and Crisis Service at SickKids, has been recognized for her exceptional commitment to protecting vulnerable children from abuse and neglect.

Roberge has received a Stand Up for Kids Award, presented by the four Toronto children's aid societies (Children's Aid Society of Toronto, Catholic Children's Aid Society of Toronto, Jewish Family & Child, and Native Child and Family Services of Toronto). The award was presented last night by the Honorable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Child and Youth Services, Ontario, during a ceremony at the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto.

During the ceremony, Hoskins highlighted not only the direct clinical services provided by the team at SickKids but also the education and support provided to community partners, including the children’s aid societies of Toronto.

Roberge leads a team of psychiatric professionals that provide prompt response to children and adolescents who may be at risk of hurting themselves or others, or who are in crisis.
