|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Mental Disorders Addiction||Behavioral: Integrated Collaborative Care Team (ICCT) Other: Treatment as Usual (TAU)|
This study is a pragmatic randomized control trial (RCT) with random allocation occurring within each hospital site to either treatment as usual (TAU) (4 out-patient hospital sites) or treatment at one of 3 community-based Integrated Collaborative Care Teams (ICCTs). A total of 500 youth aged 14-18 with mental health and/or addictions (MHA) concerns, referred for out-patient services at one of four local hospitals, will be randomized to receive ICCT care versus TAU. For each youth, a primary caregiver will also be recruited into the study, if available.
With wide inclusion criteria and a design meant to emulate a "real world" setting, this study will rigorously evaluate a service delivery model composed of multiple interventions for youth presenting with a broad range of MHA problems. The ICCT is expected to result in better MHA outcomes, show better performance indicators, and be more cost-effective than TAU.

Experimental: Integrated Collaborative Care Team
Integrated Collaborative Care Team (ICCTs) are housed in the local community to improve youth access, in three neighborhoods across Toronto (East Metro Youth Services [EMYS]-Scarborough, EMYS-Southeast Toronto, and Delisle Youth Services-Central Toronto). Each ICCT will include a variety of service providers and coordinated patient care delivering evidence-informed interventions in a stepped-care model.
Behavioral: Integrated Collaborative Care Team (ICCT)
An integrated, collaborative pathway of needs-based services. ICCTs will offer a wide variety of services, including Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) on a scheduled and walk-in basis, care navigators, various clinician-guided interventions, psychiatry, nurse practitioner services, access to primary care, and peer support, all co-located in youth-friendly, community-based clinics. For each intervention, standardized intervention protocols will be used.
Active Comparator: Treatment as Usual (TAU)
The comparator arm consists of out-patient TAU in a hospital setting and will occur at one of four outpatient hospital sites across Toronto.
Partners include the following four hospitals: Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Michael Garron Hospital (formerly the Toronto East General Hospital), and Sunnybrook Hospital.
Other: Treatment as Usual (TAU)
Standard out-patient treatment provided at each participating hospital site. This typically entails referral to a psychiatrist at the participating hospital, who will provide assessment and treatment, with referral to appropriate services, guided by local treatment protocols.
