Moving on Mental Health Dufferin Wellington

Moving on Mental Health Dufferin Wellington is part of provincial and local momentum driving toward mental health services that align with the needs of children, youth and families, and a desire to provide the best possible service experience to people who need support. Moving on Mental Health DW (MOMH) is a province-wide initiative that defines the action needed to realize Ontario’s Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. As part of this initiative, lead agencies were identified to represent regions across Ontario. The Canadian Mental Health Association of Waterloo Wellington (CMHA WW) was identified as the lead agency for Dufferin Wellington.
