The recognition of the need for transformation in youth mental health services marked the beginning of a movement of change in New Brunswick, shifting from system-centric mental health services towards the adoption of a unified provincial view placing youth and families at the center. 

The government of New Brunswick has now developed and adopted an integrated service delivery (ISD) approach to collective action on child and youth mental health. This ISD is a local and regional governance service delivery framework that enables partners to work together, using a coordinated and integrated approach to meet the needs of children and youth. 

This is their story of transformation
Frayme is thrilled to announce a new donation from the RBC Foundation in the amount of $100,000 over 1 year to support the understanding of vocational and educational supports provided as part of integrated youth services and mental health promotion. Thank you RBC Foundation!

Youth engagement is about empowering all young people as valuable partners in addressing and making decisions about issues that affect them personally and that they believe to be important. Wisdom2Action's Youth Engagement "Sharing what works" two-day event brought together youth and service partners, including Frayme, to facilitate a national conversation about effective youth engagement with youth, service providers, researchers and others working with youth.

Frayme's Secretariat and Advisory on Youth Matters members convened for the event and facilitated a workshop on Frayme-ing youth engagement within integrated youth services.
