One of the biggest challenges for people seeking mental health, substance use, and addictions services is knowing where to go.  That’s why health care partners, community service providers, and people with lived/living experience have worked together to create AccessMHA, a simple new single point of entry to eastern Ontario’s system of care for mental health and addictions.

Dear Members of the Ottawa Community,

The Royal Ottawa is launching a valuable initiative to build a framework for supporting ‘meaningful’ family caregiver engagement.

We invite families to get involved with this important project, where your input can result in the development of knowledge products, that will support the work of advisors who provide a strong family voice for change.

Please find the survey here!
