  • 2017 Mental Health for All “It takes a Nation” conference
    September 18-20, Toronto

    Change is in the air for mental health in Canada – you can feel it. But it will take the entire nation to harness those winds of change and make it real. Mental health transformation requires the whole of government and the whole of Canada to implement solutions to problems that are already well understood. We mean that transforming our mental health response isn’t just about Health. It’s about investments in housing through social infrastructure; it’s about a continuum of employment supports. It’s about promoting mental health in schools and in workplaces. And it is about addressing the needs and leveraging the strengths of our diverse population.

What is Portico

Portico is a network of addiction and mental health sites from across Canada.

Portico offers clinical tools and evidence-based materials for health care providers, social service workers and others. While the resources on the core Portico pages are designed for professional use, they can be of equal interest to those with lived experience and their families.

Portico hosts partner sites that are built and run by other groups and networks. They are editorially independent of the main site, with a variety of perspectives.

Portico's search engine includes our partners and a wide range of external addiction and mental health sites to help you find what you need.
