A new report illustrates how supportive housing providers across Ontario have come together to address unique and complex local challenges to help individuals in need.
Promising Practices: 12 Case Studies in Supportive Housing for People with Mental Health and Addictions Issues is a new resource guide produced by Addictions and Mental Health Ontario (AMHO), Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Ontario, and the Wellesley Institute. The guide shares examples of how supportive housing providers throughout the province have implemented innovative solutions and partnerships to help overcome local challenges.
Each case study has a distinct approach, but all provide resources and advice for other service providers to replicate these approaches in their own communities. The guide also includes tools that can be adapted to each community’s unique needs.
In addition to providing innovative ideas, the challenges and successes demonstrated through the case studies point to system level implications and opportunities for improvements across the sector including more affordable housing, further standardization in some areas, and enhanced system coordination.
