From November 29-December 5, CMHA-WECB joins organizations across the country in recognizing Digital Health Week, which acknowledges how digital health is transforming the delivery of care across Canada.
As the COVID-19 pandemic challenged traditional care models, service providers in mental health and addictions in Ontario had to adapt to these new and ever-changing circumstances to ensure that they could still deliver quality care to those who need support. As a result, CMHA branches across the province developed innovative practices and processes to overcome technological barriers and get Ontarians the care they need.
When it comes to virtual care, the CMHA Health Centre is delivering virtual visits via telephone and video chat, and a variety of appointments are available utilizing the Ontario Telemedicine Network for CMHA-WECB services. Additionally, education and training courses are regularly delivered online. For more information, visit our website.
CMHA branches across the country also operate online courses through Recovery Colleges, which provide a variety of mental health courses free of charge. Recovery Colleges are designed to be supportive learning environments, where everyone is welcome regardless of their mental health goals. Have your say and take our Recovery College needs assessment survey. Learn more and find a college near you on the CMHA National website.
