Our teams work in service of various provincial, institutional, and community partners to co-design, develop, implement, and sustain programs that build system capacity across the mental health and addictions landscape.

Provincial Training Programs

Ontario Structured Psychotherapy

The Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) program provides publicly funded access to evidence-based psychotherapy services for adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related disorders.

The OSP Training Program is a standardized, comprehensive clinical training program for in-service OSP clinicians. This workplace-based training model prepares clinicians through a combination of virtual (e-learning) programming, while engaging in ongoing clinical consultation, and progress monitoring and assessment. The program was developed in collaboration between Ontario Health's Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence, the Clinical and Training Table (OSP's governing body), and CAMH-KMB, with a team of education specialists and subject matter experts from across the province.

Mental Health and Well-Being in Later Life

The Mental Health and Well-Being in Later Life Program focuses on enriching the mental health and well-being of adults over 65. We mobilize evidence on issues related to mental health and aging. We develop training programs and work closely with partners to build capacity among service providers and community organizations who care for or support older adults across Ontario.

Partner Programs

We help build system capacity by working with partners to develop and deliver online training courses for a variety of audiences to respond to important topics.

Individual Placement and Support

This initiative led by Lift/Futur en tĂȘte, is a collaborative project piloting IPS implementation within select integrated youth service hubs affiliated with Foundry B.C., Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario, ACCESS Open Minds and CAMH.

IPS is an evidence-based practice that supports people with mental health challenges to overcome barriers to education and employment.

Our team supported with the development of two self-directed, online courses to help service providers working with youth to develop the skills and knowledge needed to work in IPS in diverse settings across Canada.

Measurement-Based Care

The development of this course was requested by Foundry B.C. and supported by CAMH's Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre and our KMb team.

Measurement-based care (MBC) involves the regular use of standardized, validated screening tools to track a client's progress over time and to inform treatment. MBC helps with tracking the progression of a youth in their treatment as well as identifying areas of strength and areas where treatment needs to be adjusted. MBC is a dynamic ongoing process between youth and their providers, which aims to empower youth to play an active role in their treatment.

The course will be launched in Spring of 2024.

Past Programs

Cannabis Hub

Following Cannabis legalization in Canada in 2018, our KMb team curated evidence and developed resources to help connect service providers and other stakeholders from various sectors across the country to information on the non-medical use of cannabis. Funding for this project ended in 2022 but the resources are still available and the discussion forum remains active.
