Understanding the role of the mental health patient navigator
We recognize that the mental health system is complex and understanding how it works can be difficult for patients and their families. As a result, SickKids’ Department of Psychiatry has mental health patient navigators available to help patients and their families better comprehend the mental health system.
Mental health patient navigators advocate for patients and their families. They remove barriers, coordinate activities to meet the patient’s needs and identify ways to improve the patient journey and enhance patient and family satisfaction.
If you have immediate concerns about your child’s mental health please go to your closest emergency medical service.
Please see Immediate Mental Health Services for more information on services that can be called or accessed for urgent mental health concerns.
