Mental Health and Addictions Division

The division was founded in 2001 to provide a strong, cohesive voice within OPSEU/SEFPO to promote awareness and treatment of mental health and addiction issues. We represent just over 8,000 members in public hospitals, which were formerly known as provincial psychiatric hospitals, as well as community mental and addiction health agencies.

Celebrate CMHA Mental Health Week, May 2-8

During this week we encourage all members in the mental health and addictions division to use their social media platforms to tell political party leaders to #GetReal2Heal and invest in mental health and addictions services.

All Ontarians should have access to life saving mental health and addictions services.

Support Mental Health Week May 2-8

OPSEU is encouraging all of its members to mark Mental Health Week on their calendars. This is an important week for all Canadians, not just those suffering mental health issues.  It is also an opportunity to educate ourselves about how our mental health impacts our overall health.
