The Central LHIN has recently received funding to implement Integrated Health Service Plan priorities. One of the priority areas is mental health and addictions.  Within this priority, there is a need to increase cultural competency of Health Service Providers to improve access for ethno-racial communities to services in the Central LHIN.   A project has been identified to address this issue.  The project focuses on supporting up to 33 mental health and addictions service providers that are funded by the Central LHIN to apply a self-assessment tool on diversity, participate in educational and peer mentorship activities and begin to embed cultural competency into their agency.   The self-assessment tool, called the Diversity Lens, is a checklist and a framework to help remove systemic barriers and develop more inclusive policies and procedures within agencies.

We are seeking data entry support for this project.  Specifically, we are seeking support to capture data gathered from the implementation of the Diversity Lens in all 33 mental health and addictions agencies in the Central LHIN.
