Mental Health and Addictions

The division was founded in 2001 to provide a strong, cohesive voice within OPSEU 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.
