The Ottawa Community Partnerships for Health Equity is a hub for working and learning together to address health inequities in Ottawa. Coordinated by the Social Planning Council of Ottawa, it showcases and promotes community development approaches and local projects with our partners that improve health outcomes for residents impacted by systemic barriers to good health and well-being.

Responding to Mental Health Crises:
Learning from Models in Ottawa and Beyond

In Ottawa, Canada and the U.S., there have been many successful models for responding to mental health crises. We invite you to this speaker series to learn what is currently being done in response to mental health crisis situations.

Each event in the series will feature one approach to a mental health crisis response, with a presentation highlighting how and why it was developed, how it works and the lessons learned. 


Bringing Communities Together Around Brain Health and Aging” Webinars

The series will build the understanding and skills necessary for transformative improvement in the health and wellbeing of ethno-cultural minority seniors with dementia and their caregivers. Join us for great ideas, models, tools and training on best practices, the current state of culturally responsive dementia care in Canada, cultural competency in health and seniors support services and the central role of informal networks and community-based supports. Build your connections with other participants including grassroots ethno-cultural organizations, community-based seniors groups, service providers, decision-makers and planners in the health and seniors sectors.

Effective partnerships are essential for community-based solutions for advancing health equity. When multiple sectors collaborate, more resources can be shared to shape better outcomes for everyone.
