Reliability and Concurrent Validity of the GAIN Short Screener Among Youth Utilizing Integrated Health Services
CONCLUSION: The results indicate that the GAIN-SS and IDScr have acceptable sensitivity but poor specificity that could be improved via the optimal cut-points identified in this study. This low specificity may be acceptable within an integrated youth health service that provides follow-up diagnostic assessments by a clinician.PMID:33953760 | PMC:PMC8056962 (Source: Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

Headspace, an Australian Youth Mental Health Network: Lessons for Canadian Mental Healthcare
CONCLUSIONS: Canadians should be wary of large youth programs that operate outside mainstream mental healthcare because of similar dangers such as poor co-ordination with existing government-funded services, duplication of care, the substantial consumption of resources, and limited evaluation of outcomes. As Access Open Minds is a clinical research project, there is the opportunity for Canada to evaluate the efficacy of the model before further adoption by governments.PMID:33953763 | PMC:PMC8056954 (Source: Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

Recommendations for youth engagement in Canadian mental health research in the context of COVID-19
J Can Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry. 2021 May;30(2):123-130. Epub 2021 May 1.ABSTRACTThe COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in reduced access to in-person mental health services, and a shift to virtual platforms. Youth may be uniquely impacted by physical distancing requirements during the pandemic, including limited socialization opportunities, closures of educational institutions, a lack of meaningful extracurricular activities and adverse implications on key developmental milestones. Due to the potential impact of COVID-19 on youth well-being, the need to rapidly transform services to be accessible, and the potential risks ...

We specifically discuss how systemic racism adversely affects the mental health of children and adolescents in a Canadian context and use a structural framework to demonstrate how race is embedded in various Canadian systems and thus affects child and adolescent mental health in both conscious and unconscious ways throughout the lifespan.
