The Directory of Mental Health and Addiction Services for Ontario's Older Adults is an initiative of the Older Persons' Mental Health and Addictions Network (OPMHAN), which was initiated in 2002 under the sponsorship of the Ontario Gerontology Association. The Network actively seeks out and invites the participation of service providers, consumers and consumer groups, family caregivers, ethno-cultural groups, educational facilities, research organizations, governments, and associations with an interest or a stake in the mental health and addiction needs of seniors. To date, the Network includes representation from 50 regional and provincial organizations, consumers and family advocacy groups. The mission of this cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary Network is: 'To improve the Ontario system of care for older persons in the community at risk of or coping with mental illness and addictions - and to support those who care for and about them.' They also have a Directory of Mental Health and Addiction Services for Ontario's Older Adults. The directory is intended as a resource for those who work with older adults, as well as those older adults wishing to learn more about maintaining mental health and/or seeking treatment for mental illness and addictions, and for family members, caregivers and friends.
