New and innovative technologies allow counsellors, nurse practitioners, family doctors, occupational therapists, pharmacists, and social workers to connect with individuals and families in communities across our province.
Our Mental Health and Addictions Division works in partnership with regional health authorities, community groups, advisory councils, individuals with lived experience, and other stakeholders. Together, they’ve created a fabric and framework to lend support and aid to those experiencing mental health and substance use concerns.
