Description:The Addiction and Mental Health Worker program is offered by the School of Community and Health Studies. This program helps you acquire the knowledge and skills needed to work in mental health and addiction services, using evidence-based knowledge and skills in screening, assessing and responding to people with mental health and substance use issues from diverse cultural and community perspectives.

In your Addition and Mental Health Work courses, you learn to work with individuals, family members and small groups who are impacted by addiction and mental health issues. You’ll work with them in a variety of community health and human services settings, such as mental health and addiction agencies, homeless drop-in centres and crisis service centres. You also gain the knowledge to advocate for equitable access to supports and services, including health promotion, prevention and harm reduction. The Addiction and Mental Health Work program has a commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous communities in Canada. As such, we offer students Indigenous perspectives to addiction and mental health work throughout their courses.
