Our Mission
To lead change that will revolutionize the addiction and mental health care experience for people in Ontario.
Our ​Vision
The best addiction and mental health system, anywhere.
There is Need

The need for a strong, high-performing mental health and addictions system has never been greater. Demand for mental health and addictions services is increasing dramatically, and at the same time, the way our health care system is funded and structured is changing profoundly. Not all Ontarians are getting the access they need to these services in a timely manner. In such an environment, it is vital to identify which changes in the environment offer the greatest potential risks and benefits to the services and providers.

That’s Where AMHO Does Its Part

AMHO mobilizes the MHA sector towards a better system for the clients who use it. We play a leading role in working with our members to mobilize their knowledge and innovations, build capacity and scale sector-leading best practices. AMHO supports peer to-peer learning to share innovations in care. We leverage our members’ extensive expertise to showcase leading evidence-informed models and work with our funders and other partners to drive broader adoption as well as sustained investment in building a world-class mental health and addictions system for all Ontarians.
