About the Session:
This presentation will provide participants with an overview of primary care and mental health and addictions collaborative models, successes, and challenges in Ontario. The Mental Health and Addictions Leadership Advisory Council conducted a survey in 2016 with community mental health and addictions service providers and primary care providers requesting information that would enhance understanding regarding how these two sectors are currently working together across the province. The survey findings from community providers, CHCs, and FHTs on experiences in delivering collaborative mental health and addictions care with primary care will be the focus of this presentation.
