The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Department of Health and Social Services released a Mental Wellness and Addictions Recovery Action Plan in 2019. They are now looking to develop a Seamless Care Pathway model to help northerners access appropriate care.
In order to do so, they are looking for community input through the establishment of a Mental Wellness and Addictions Recovery Advisory Group. This group will be made up of members with lived experiences with mental health or addictions personally or as caregivers. The Advisory Group will provide advice and direction on new and existing mental wellness and addictions recovery policies, programs, services, and initiatives.
The GNWT is looking for members of the public with interest to submit an application to serve on this Advisory Group. The deadline to apply is July 31 at 3 pm.
If interested, please find the application attached to this post.
