How You Can Help

Make a donation

Your donation to SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health through the SickKids Foundation supports our development of a program of research to improve knowledge with respect to child and youth mental health and support better outcomes.

It also offers us the means to implement specific projects designed to address particular areas of need that are not directly covered by our public funding.

Our sincere thanks to our generous donors and their special interest in child and youth mental health.


Volunteer opportunities are currently suspended until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check this page for status updates. No phone calls please.

Our volunteers enrich the services we offer to our clients and families.
