THE New Mentality
2013-2014 was a busy year for CMHO. Our priority continues to be supporting our members through the system transformation process, and ensuring their views and ideas about the implementation of transformation are communicated to decision-makers at Queen’s Park.
The engagement of CMHO members in the development of our policy statements strengthens our ability to combine strategic thinking with the on-the-ground realities of policy implementation. This year we produced three papers, each focusing on issues related to system transformation. Recommendations deliver thoughtful considerations to policy makers, partners and CMHO members as we move through the transformation process.

During the summer of 2013 we consulted extensively with our members to gather their views on the draft Service Framework and submitted a formal report to government in October 2013 that documented members’ key issues and concerns about the transformation process. The 34 service delivery areas were announced at our conference in November 2013 and the process to name the first round of lead agencies was launched in early 2014. These important steps marked the beginning of system transformation. The first 14 lead agencies were named in the summer of 2014 and all remaining lead agencies are expected to be in place in 2015.
Welcome to CMHO’s new Annual Report. This year we decided to go in a new direction – to present the highlights of the year and impact to members using a more visual layout. The interactive on-line version of the Annual Report will link to more detailed information on specific initiatives, programs and products.
Youth across the province continue to add a valuable perspective to CMHO’s work. Our Youth Action Committee’s report, Building a Better School Environment for Youth with Mental Health and Addiction Issues, was launched at a news conference at Queen’s Park during CMHO’s 2013 conference and has been well received by educators and policy makers.
This year brought a close to a significant chapter in CMHO’s history with the retirement of Gordon Floyd. Gordon took on the role of CEO in 2004 and built CMHO into the primary advocate for child and youth mental health in Ontario. We wish Gordon well in his retirement adventures. Our new CEO, Kimberly Moran, assumed her role in July 2014. Kim comes to CMHO with a strong background in advocacy for children’s mental health and we are excited to welcome her at such an important time in CMHO’s history.
