Mental Health and Addiction Services

Mental Health and Addiction Services

There are approximately 11,500 seriously mental ill people living in the Central West LHIN, representing about two percent of our total population over 15 years of age. The rate of substance abuse in people with mental illness disorders is estimated to be at 29 percent. We will look at developing an improved service delivery system that connects residents with the right care when they need it.

10 Year Provincial Mental Health and Addictions Strategy

The Ministry of Health and Long-term Care has made recommendations for a mental health and addictions strategy as well as documented the beginnings of a concrete 10-year action plan.  Respect, Recovery, Resilience: Recommendations for Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions Strategy was released in December 2010.

The recommendations are a culmination of activities by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.  They held a summit in July 2009 called Open Minds.  Healthy Minds.  From that the discussion paper Every Door is the Right Door was published, providing a starting point for the development of the 10 year strategy.  As part of that process, the Central West LHIN held a series of public consultations in May 2009 to get local input.  Thank you to all of those who participated in the Central West LHIN community consultation to help inform this strategy. Mental Health and Addictions 10 Year Strategy - Community Engagement Report is the report from this consultation.
