Krista Sepp Memorial Awards

For the past 25 years, supported by agencies across the province, the annual Awards have honoured Krista Sepp, who lost her life on February 3, 1989, while performing her duties as a child and youth worker.

Kinark is proud to share its recently released paper: Strengthening Children’s Mental Health Residential Treatment through Evidence and Experience.

Kinark believes that the evidence outlined in this paper contributes a strong and compelling call to action and that there is an opportunity now to begin redeveloping a decades-old system through the formation of a clear policy framework and a comprehensive provincial service plan for the provision of residential treatment in Ontario.
