Concurrent Disorders Capacity Building Strategy

Increasing Concurrent Disorders Capacity across the HNHB LHIN through education, local projects and collaboration.


About the Strategy


The Concurrent Disorders Capacity Building Strategy is a project of the HNHB LHIN (Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network).


The intent for this project is to engage in each of the 5 major HNHB LHIN geographic regions (Hamilton, Niagara, Haldimand-Norfolk, Brant and Burlington) and identify opportunities for change and service improvements within that region. The goal will be to work on rapid change opportunities with clear outcomes related to concurrent disorders capacity building. The goal of this project is to build concurrent disorders capacity within existing community based services.   Our hope is to create Concurrent Disorders service improvements across the HNHB LHIN that offer better experiences for service users and increased capacity amongst community agency staff.   This project hopes to build upon the work already taking place in local community agencies, and aims to offer coordination and support to those efforts.

The Concurrent Disorders Capacity Building Strategy is funded by the HNHB LHIN until March 31, 2017.  Currently we have a variety of educational activities occuring, and local improvement projects in each of the five areas of the HNHB LHIN.

The Concurrent Disorders Implementation Coordinator role is placed within St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton in the Concurrent Disorders program.
