Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction

Addiction and Mental Health Care: Resources to Support Collaboration is a compilation of successful collaborations between the addiction and mental health sectors in Canada, along with tools and resources to support such collaborations.

As we address the need for more collaboration between mental health and addiction services, professionals working in these fields need access to the tools and resources necessary to increase their capacity for collaboration. CCSA’s work aims to help bridge the gap that exists between mental health and addiction services by supporting the collaborative practices of partners and providing a spotlight on those collaborative practices in Canada that are achieving positive outcomes.

This compilation helps by answering key questions like:

  • What is collaboration and what does it look like?
  • Who is doing good collaborative work in Canada and where?
  • Where can I go to learn more about successful collaborations in Canada?
  • What tools and resources are available to support collaborative work in Canada?

The compilation builds on information found in Collaboration for Addiction and Mental Health Care: Best Advice, a report developed by CCSA, the Mental Health Commission of Canada and the Canadian Executive Council on Addictions, which lays out best practices for collaborations between addiction and mental health services and supports.

Addiction and Mental Health Care: Resources to Support Collaboration is meant to evolve as we learn more about new collaborations and new resources over time.
