It is well established that some groups in society experience social and economic disadvantage – inequities – due to the unequal distribution of power, wealth and resources. This is especially true for people with mental health and addiction issues.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has identified equity as a key component of quality care. MOHLTC has developed the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) tool to support improved health equity, including the reduction of avoidable health disparities between population groups.
During this webinar, you will be provide an overview of:
- The impact of equity issues in mental health and addictions
- The importance of utilizing the HEIA tool for health service delivery, program planning and policy development
- How to utilize the HEIA Mental Health and Addictions Tip Sheet to get started in completing a HEIA
This webinar is hosted by the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) Community of Interest at CAMH.
