Mental Health Supports for Ottawa’s ACB Communities
This Coalition aims to hold health system leaders accountable to ensuring safe, accessible and culturally appropriate mental health programs and services for the African, Caribbean, Black (ACB) community in Ottawa. We believe to achieve these outcomes; our strategies need to be grounded within Black communities, and centered around the Black voice.
Working towards the development of a Regional Mental Health Strategy for the African, Caribbean, Black (ACB) community in Ottawa, our goal is to achieve a more equitable mental health system by improving access to culturally appropriate mental health supports and resources offering healthier outcomes for ACB residents in Ottawa.
Our Black leadership comprises key stakeholders, community members, academics, health and social service providers, and other partners who are embedded within the mental health and social service sector, all of whom are committed to dismantling the systemic barriers that exist within our health system.
