The Consumer/Survivor Network (CSN) is a unique program sponsored by Friends & Advocates Peel and funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care through the Central West LHIN (5).
The CSN gives people who have lived experience with mental health and/or addictions the opportunity to come together with peers to share stories of recovery, learn from one another and provide valuable input into many projects, initiatives and committees taking place in the Central West LHIN (5).
By providing your input, you are helping to ensure that our mental health and addictions system is meeting the needs in your community.
What is a LHIN?
Local Health Integration Networks (LHIN)
In 2007, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care divided Ontario into 14 LHINs. Each LHIN was given the mandate to plan, integrate and fund health care services for their specific communities in the Province of Ontario.
Central West LHIN (5)
Together, Making Healthy Change Happen
A mosaic of geographic and cultural diversity and home to over 922,000 local residents, the Central West LHIN plans, integrates, funds and monitors the local health care system for the regions of Brampton, Caledon, Dufferin, Malton, north Etobicoke and west Woodbridge.
“Together, Making Healthy Change Happen” is a reference to collective responsibility. As the Central West LHIN plans, integrates, funds and monitors the local health care system, it does so in collaboration with a host of Health Service Providers (HSPs), community partners and local residents, recognizing that the health needs of local communities are best understood by those who live and work in them. Both residents and health care professionals alike, place high value on their health care system and the need for it to be responsive to local communities. Together, we are making healthy change happen!
