The project is governed by multi-stakeholder groups, including representatives of the four hospital sites, community agencies, youth, and family members. The Core Team is made up of the Principal Investigators and other research team members, as well as site representatives and youth and family member co-investigators. This team is supported by four working groups focusing on:
1) community services
2) study methodology
3) hospital processes
4) implementation science.
Participating in each working group are also youth advisors to provide the youth voice to the project.
Youth and family advisory groups have been established to facilitate the incorporation of feedback from the end user stakeholders. The full project team includes collaborators from various research, clinical, and broader community specialties ensuring that the necessary expertise is available for all aspects of the project.
