The Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario and Addictions and Mental Health Ontario (AMHO) released a new report today titled, “Concurrent Disorder Services in Ontario: An Environmental Scan.” The report highlights priority issues related to the planning, delivering and monitoring of services for people with concurrent disorders in Ontario.
The report recognizes both the opportunities and challenges, and identifies key areas which can be addressed, when it comes to the delivery of community-based services for Ontarians living with concurrent disorders.
Its single recommendation asks that CMHA Ontario, AMHO, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the LHINs work together to improve community-based services for Ontarians living with concurrent disorders.
This report is timely as the action plan for years four through 10 of Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy is currently in early stages of development. With government and stakeholder conversations about the strategy’s action plan underway, CMHA Ontario and AMHO viewed this as a good opportunity to release this report.
