Abstract

In June 2014, as a part of the overall Cree Health Board mandate to improve mental health services, the regional mental health department began a service monitoring quality assurance project. This involved gathering feedback from the most important stakeholders in the services: clients and front line workers.

The project focused on clients’ experience with on-Territory psychology and psychiatry services, and the relationship between these services, the local teams, and referrals to tertiary services provided off-Territory.

This two-page handout summarizes some of the results of the assessment.
