Dr. Mario Cappelli, Director of Psychiatric and Mental Health Research at CHEO, talks about his work in the area of youth mental health. Dr. Cappelli and his team have developed a diagnostic tool called HEADS-ED that helps physicians determine youth’s mental health needs and the best treatment options to serve them.
