Ontario is helping more people access co-ordinated mental health services when and where they need them by moving forward on the next phase of its mental health strategy, establishing a Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council and increasing support to community mental health service partners.
The Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, launched in 2011 with a focus on children and youth, provided more than 50,000 additional children and youth with access to mental health and addiction services. The strategy is now expanding to support the transition between youth and adult services, and to improve the quality of services for Ontarians of all ages.
