Communities of Interest

EENet is thrilled to announce the next phase of our Communities of Interest (CoIs) initiative!

 

EENet’s communities of interest bring together individuals who are interested in a common problem so they can develop and share new knowledge that will help improve understanding and action around that problem. These CoIs take a provincial approach and focus on mental health and addictions, especially as it relates to systems and services.

 

The new group of CoIs, which includes some returning communities, will benefit from knowledge broker support, links to EENet’s network of stakeholders, as well as access to technological resources and the communication vehicles of EENet and its partners.

 

The complete list of the current CoIs is below (with lead organizations listed in parentheses). Read more about each CoI and find contact information here.

  • Crisis Continuum of Care CoI (Region of Peel)
  • Family Caregiver CoI (Ontario Family Caregivers’ Advisory Network)
  • Housing and Justice CoI (Canadian Mental Health Association Ontario, the Wellesley Institute, and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health)
  • Housing First CoI (Wilfrid Laurier University and University of Ottawa)
  • Health Equity Impact Assessment CoI (the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health)
  • Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee CoI (Human Services and Justice Coordinating Committee)
  • Ontario Common Assessment of Need CoI (Provincial Common Assessment and Integrated Assessment Record Clinical Standards Committee)
  • Racialized Populations CoI (Canadian Mental Health Association Ontario)
  • Transition-Aged Youth CoI (the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health)
