Family Engagement

AYSP is a partner in the Peel-wide Family Engagement committee, together with EveryMind, William Osler Health System, Trillium Health Partners, and community parents/caregivers. The Family Engagement Committee began with families and partners collaborating to develop the committee’s framework, which promotes families as active decision-makers and equal partners in treatment and service delivery at the individual, organizational and system levels. For service providers, this means listening to what families think, communicating, collaborating and involving family members as partners in decision-making so that their involvement is meaningful and purposeful.

The Peel Family Engagement committee continues to actively recruit family members to participate in the committee and activities and initiatives, such as developing quality standards, implementation tools, review/revisioning of recruitment for Family Engagement, and co-creating the Family Engagement Newsletter, which assists in providing information for others on how to get involved.
