This session will provide an overview of the development and implementation of New Brunswick’s Integrated Service Delivery (ISD) framework, an interdepartmental approach to holistic mental health care for children, youth and families. The ISD framework has enhanced the timely delivery of essential mental health services and supports, and has built capacity for prevention and early intervention efforts by enhancing protective factors and minimizing risks related to the escalation of unmet mental health concerns.
