Knowledge development and exchange hub


What is the Hub?

The Knowledge Development and Exchange Hub is dedicated to optimal mental health and its promotion for children and youth in Canada. We support projects funded through the Mental Health Promotion Innovation Fund and others with shared interests, to develop and scale-up promising approaches for child and youth mental health promotion. The Hub helps to create, share and use a wide range of knowledge that is relevant, credible and timely. We do this by curating knowledge, facilitating meaningful connections, and providing access to mentors with specialized expertise, all aiming to contribute to meaningful outcomes and a thriving child and youth mental health promotion community in Canada.

Anyone interested in improving mental health promotion for children and youth is welcome to join us on this platform. Please access all content, participate in webinars and discussions, and shape our services.

On this platform, you will find:

  • Resources for knowledge development and exchange in child and youth mental health promotion
  • Information about the projects funded through the Innovation Fund
  • Spaces for discussion and making connections with others
  • An overview of the KDE Hub and those involved in it
