ROLE STATEMENT

The WRHA Adult Mental Health Program is aligned with the overarching WRHA vision which is: "Healthy People, Vibrant Communities, Equitable Care for All."

To bring this vision to reality the WRHA Adult Mental Health Program provides an integrated and comprehensive range of mental health services and supports primarily for adult residents of Winnipeg across the health care continuum that support and promote recovery. Through collaboration and partnership across various health, social service and community sectors the program strives to promote mental health and well- being for all, to reduce inequities and the impact of mental health problems and to work towards sustainability of mentally healthy individuals and communities.


The Adult Mental Health Program of the WRHA provides a range of mental health services in both community and hospital settings. The program is committed to providing a responsive and inclusive system aimed to restore, promote and maintain mental health and well-being for the Winnipeg population.  The Adult Mental Health Program works in partnership with many community services and agencies as well as programs within the WRHA to provide a client focused continuum of care to meet the unique needs of adults experiencing mental health difficulties and their families.

In addition to treatment and service delivery the Regional Adult Mental Health Program is involved in education and training, research, evaluation, knowledge exchange, practice development, quality and improvement, mental health promotion and policy and planning activities which supports service delivery and informs population mental health needs for the region.

The WRHA Mental Health Program also contracts with community agencies to provide services that enhance and compliment the system.
