Health Equity Action Group

Supporting the voices and needs of people living with mental health challenges in the Jane-Finch Community

Black Creek Community Health Centre is the lead agency of an exciting project called Health Equity Action Group (formerly called Advocacy for Change).  Thanks to the financial support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation - www.otf.ca - our Centre, in collaboration with  a group of other organizations- including Jane-Finch Community and Family Centre, Cota Health, Delta Family Resource Centre  and Toronto Pubic Health – will be helping to establish a resident-led consumer survivor advisory group that will inform the work of the Northwest Community Mental Health Network  and try to make improvements in the services and supports for people living with mental health challenges. The group will also raise more awareness in the community about the stresses that contribute to mental health difficulties, and of the kinds of supports that help people to feel better.
