A new name change and redesign of delivery for mental health services

Algoma Public Health mental health and addictions services will be transferred into Canadian Mental Health Association Algoma services today, which also include a new name change.

CMHA Algoma chief executive officer Annette Katajamaki says the agency is also in the process of redesigning its model of service to include a single point of access for incoming calls and referrals that will align well with best practice priorities for mental health and addictions.

She stresses the new access model will allow clients to be immediately linked to a staff person who will connect the individual to the appropriate mental health and addictions support services.

The organization will now be known as Canadian Mental Health Association Algoma – Mental Health and Addictions Services to reflect the services being delivered across the District of Algoma.
