CADTH assessed the clinical effectiveness and safety of formal peer support programs for youth mental health to support decision-making about adopting, implementing, and evaluating formal peer support programs for youth mental health. We also identified and described existing and recommended methods for the evaluation of formal peer support programs for youth mental health, including completed evaluations conducted in Canada and internationally, and summarized findings of completed evaluations in Canada. CADTH also engaged youth peer support workers and youth peer support service users as part of its patient engagement activities.
