The College of Family Physicians of Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Psychiatric Association and the Canadian Psychological Association, released a new resource in the Innovation in Primary Care (IPC) series, Integrating Mental Health Services in Primary Care. It features case examples from British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and one specific to Manitoba’s Cree communities. The case examples address common challenges and barriers to integrating mental health services, with particular emphasis in psychological and psychiatric services, in community-based practices.
