Mental Health & Addictions – Women’s Roundtable

In October 2008, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care appointed an Advisory Group made up of people with lived experience of mental illness and addictions, family members, service providers and researchers to help develop a new 10 year strategy that could transform mental health and addiction services in Ontario.  In July 2009, following extensive research and discussions with people from across the province, the Advisory Group released Every Door is the Right Door, to provide a starting point for discussions on the province’s mental health and addictions strategy.

WomenatthecentrE was invited to participate in a roundtable consultation, facilitated by the Ontario Women’s Directorate, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, on the governments’ proposed 10-year Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. This roundtable focused on violence against women (VAW) and the connections between trauma associated with violence and mental illness and addiction.

In attendance were Nneka MacGregor (our Executive Director), Dawnmarie Harriott and Tania Perlin (2 of our members).

Stay tuned for more updates.


WomenatthecentrE of Law Reform

Attorney General Chris Bentley (pictured left with Tania Perlin, Nneka MacGregor, and Sheri Cohen) announced  new provisions affecting restraining orders made under the Children’s Law Reform Act and the Family Law Act.
WomenatthecentrE played an integral role in making this happen by engaging in roundtable discussions with the Ministry of the Attorney General and other advocates. We also made a submission before the Standing Committee on Social Policy on Bill 133 – a bill to amend various Acts in relation to certain family law matters and to repeal the Domestic Violence Protection Act.
