Latest Umind News
Umind has been developed for mental health professionals to access information and share practical tools, knowledge, and training and to help improve the lives of children and youth and their families living with mental health issues.
This national knowledge exchange initiative is the result of a partnership between the Kids’ Health Links Foundation (KHLF) and the Lutherwood Institute for Children and Youth Mental Health. It is comprised of the generous contributions and collaboration between children and youth mental health treatment and resource centres across Canada. Registered members have access to practical tools, promising interventions, and a network of child and youth mental health professionals.
With over 1,345 registered users around the world, and 900 child and youth mental health professionals participating in our free webinars, the need for the resources we provide continues to rise.
What you may not realize is that while Umind’s resources and webinars are completely free to you, we receive no government funding to operate or grow. Umind and our parent foundation (Kids’ Health Links Foundation) relies on the generosity of donors to ensure that we as professionals have the tools we need to help children cope.
