Children’s Health Foundation


Children’s Health Foundation (CHF) strengthens and transforms the health care experience through funding for equipment, programs, and research that ensure better childhood experiences for kids facing serious health issues and providing hope, relief, and support for those who love them, when:

  • The hospital is a second home
  • Physical ability is a barrier to living a fulfilled life
  • Families face their most challenging moments

By supporting CHF, donors enable cutting-edge care, rehabilitation, and research that ensure the best care and the most hope for children and their loved ones across Southwestern Ontario, who are experiencing life-threatening or life-limiting diagnosis. CHF is also a proud partner of the A Family of Support: Child & Youth Mental Health Initiative.

“My 11-year-old daughter Charlotte struggled with debilitating mental illness. Your generous gifts support the exceptional care provided at Children’s Hospital in London. And it was Children’s Hospital where we finally found some hope – and treatment – for our daughter. Their amazing doctors have made such a difference to Charlotte and our family over the past 7 years.” -Charlotte’s Mom

How your donations will help

Your donations will directly support the new Prospect program established as part of the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Program offered by the Children’s Hospital – London Health Sciences Centre.

Because psychosis ranks as the third most disabling condition worldwide, and early intervention can be instrumental in preventing or mitigating the advancement of mental health symptoms, Children’s Hospital is expanding an early identification and intervention program called the Prospect Program. This program focuses on supporting youth who are at high risk of developing psychosis. The Prospect Program emphasizes timely detection and proper treatment; the treatment approach focuses primarily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and consistent follow-up care, both of which have been shown to benefit this patient population. These treatment strategies are used to help participants manage symptoms that can be early signs of psychosis, especially anxiety and depression.
