As we grow to better understand the co-occurring nature of mental health problems and substance use, there is a call to work more closely on providing integrated care.  The MHCC, in partnership with CCSA and others, have started work that explores the important intersections between the mental health and substance use sectors to advance policy and program change across Canada. We are also focusing efforts on the ongoing opioid crisis, which is taking a devastating toll on individuals, families, front-line workers, and communities across the country.
