I am proud to officially welcome our Family Intervention Therapy (FIT) trained clinicians!
Committed to providing exemplary care to our patients and families, Ontario Shores is proud to have played a significant role in developing the Quality Standards for Mental Health, which were recently unveiled by Health Quality Ontario (HQO).
The Quality Standards address key opportunities for improvement in the care of major depression, schizophrenia and behavioural symptoms of dementia.
At its annual Health Quality Transformation Conference last October in Toronto, Health Quality Ontario (HQO) unveiled its first three Quality Standards in an effort to advance mental health care in Ontario.
Ontario Shores played a leadership role in assisting HQO develop Quality Standards to address key opportunities for improvement in the care of major depression, schizophrenia and the behavioural symptoms of dementia.
The development of these standards is a significant moment for mental health care.
Meeting Bruno Guevremont was an experience I won’t soon forget.
An intelligent, compassionate and inspiring person, Guevremont came to Ontario Shores in his role as a Bell Let’s Talk Day Ambassador to continue his work as an advocate for mental health as a guest on our #MindVine podcast.
A 15-year veteran who had two tours of Afghanistan, Guevremont was part of an anti-explosives team; a busy outfit that dealt with more than 100 improvised explosive devices. On the podcast, he spoke about his experiences as a soldier and his return to civilian life, where his struggles with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and mental illness became real.
