Closing the gaps in equity

The North York Service Collaborative, a part of the CAMH-led initiative Systems Improvement through Service Collaboratives (SISC), is responding to gaps in equity in their region through the implementation of Peer Positive Services. Beyond simply engaging people with lived experience, this shift toward Peer Positive Services aims, to ensure that spaces are supportive, equitable and responsive to the participation of young people and their families. This is achieved through action on three codependent components: 1) critical reflective practice, 2) addressing inequalities and 3) co-learning (co-review, co-design and co-delivery).
