About Our Partners
Canadian Mental Health Association | Ontario
Founded in 1952, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Ontario, is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to making mental health possible for all.
CMHA Ontario achieves its mission by being a leader in the evolution of Ontario’s mental health and addictions system. We contribute our knowledge, resources and skills to provincial policy development and implementation. We promote mental health in collaboration with others. We further equitable access to mental health services and champion the reduction of mental health disparities. And we serve our branches in building their governance and leadership capacities.
CMHA Ontario is a dedicated partner within the network of Canadian Mental Health Associations at the national, provincial and local level. CMHA Ontario works closely with its 30 local branches in communities across the province to ensure the utilization of best practices in the organization, management and delivery of services to consumers and families of individuals with mental illnesses, dual diagnosis and concurrent disorders. All CMHAs in Ontario work in a variety of partnerships to provide a coordinated, continuum of care using the social determinants of health model.
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada’s largest mental health teaching hospital and one of the world’s leading research centres in its field. The Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) at CAMH works with communities and service providers across Ontario to move evidence to action to create sustainable, system-level change and to mobilize implementation support for Open Minds, Healthy Minds: Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. With offices in Toronto and across the province, PSSP is on the ground, collaborating with stakeholders to build a better system through our work in implementation, knowledge exchange, evaluation, information management, health equity and engagement.
