Juliana Tobon

Juliana Tobon completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology under the supervision of Graham Reid at Western University in London, Ontario. Her program of research has investigated parents’ experiences in seeking and receiving mental health services in Ontario’s children’s mental health system. For her dissertation, she developed a parent and youth measure of Continuity of Care in Children’s Mental Health. While continuity is a stated goal of most, if not all, agencies providing mental health services for children and a specific objective of Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, no measures of continuity of care existed for children’s mental health.
