Family Navigation Project
The Family Navigation Project (FNP) at Sunnybrook is a non-profit program designed to provide expert navigation of the mental health and addictions service system for youth aged 13-26 and their families, who are living in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Funded through philanthropy and built by families out of a need for a better and innovative model, FNP is a free service offered through phone and email that uses a combination of clinical and lived experience to support a relationship-based model of care. Operating since 2013, the FNP collaborates with families and their youth with mental health and/or addiction issues to understand their unique needs and match them with supports and services to enhance their health and family functioning. FNP’s vision is that “no family feels lost in the mental health and addiction system”.
