Amalgamation aims to improve mental health services in three Ontario Counties
The Brant County and the Haldimand Norfolk branches of the Canadian Mental Health Association are exploring a voluntary integration between the two organizations to better serve their communities. Citing a commitment to improve the client experience, access, and maintain high quality health care, board representatives from both branches have begun the planning work necessary to ensure the amalgamated organization provides enhanced services.
“We are excited about the future of our new community mental health agency, and the historically excellent work we will continue to provide in our communities,” said Board presidents Ruth Gratton and Burns MacLeod in a joint statement.
The branches also expressed their commitment to make the amalgamation process as transparent as possible, beginning with a community-engagement process involving presentations, surveys, written progress reports, and other feedback to communicate with all stakeholders.
