The Mental Health Provider Guide was co-produced by the Psychosocial Professionals group and members of the ImproveCareNow Community. It is a four-page guide for families and youth living with IBD.

The Mental Health Provider Guide includes detailed information about the importance of addressing mental health needs as part of comprehensive IBD care, how to find and work with a mental health provider, and what to expect during mental health counseling.

The Ostomy Toolkit was created by the ImproveCareNow Patient Advisory Council's Advocacy Taskforce in collaboration with the whole ICN Community. The toolkit is designed for and by pediatric patients who have had, or are having, ostomy surgery (resting or permanent ostomy).

The Ostomy Toolkit includes tips, tricks and personal stories about school, travel, supplies, playing sports, clothing choices, and how to tell friends. It's an extraordinary tool to help lessen fears about ostomy surgery and life with an ostomy, and to promote awareness and understanding.
