Mental Health Partnership
Our GBT2Q+ mental health partnership table is made up of mental health practitioners (which includes managers and front line workers from agencies, community workers, and private practitioners). We meet quarterly to get feedback on our programs and services, discuss issues relevant to our communities, and understand how we can work together to address these barriers systemically. Each meeting usually includes a presentation on a topic pertinent to the GBT2Q+ communities that we work with.
In partnership with The Ottawa Hospital and other key players, MAX Ottawa will bring regional partners, and stakeholders together to create a strategy to increase access to and uptake of PrEP and nPEP by guys into guys in the Nation's Capital region. This call to action will complement the efforts already being done throughout the region by different stakeholders and will help coordinate a systems approach around these prevention methods.
