The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) would like to speak with a young person who waited months before receiving community mental health counselling services.

We would like to invite you or your family members to participate in an interview to share your health care experience. Insights from this interview will appear in an article/story on CIHI’s website and may be included in a media release. You will get a chance to review any quotes attributed to you or your family member.

If you are interested, we will book a 30 to 45 minute phone interview in early April 2021.

Read details here.

If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Corinne Ton That at
You will be asked to fill out a short questionnaire to help us in the selection process. Participation is voluntary.

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
