Our mental health and addictions (MHA) system is ripe for transformation: new models of care. Cutting-edge technologies have the potential to reduce costs and help us re-think how we deliver care. Embedding modern digital solutions into legacy service delivery models is not enough; we need to think bigger and re-imagine a MHA system that can push through existing barriers and accelerate the adoption of digitally-enabled service delivery models.

This is the third and final MHA Issue Brief in a series aimed at exploring MHA in the context of the client seeking care (see Issue Brief I) and the broader MHA system (see Issue Brief II). In this Issue Brief, we focus on:

  1. How we might think differently about re-imagining MHA given advancements and disruptions in technological trends across other industries.
  2. A blueprint to consider for the redesign of the MHA system and a practical example to illustrate its application.
  3. How to set the conditions for success.
