Making Gains 2006 in Mental Health & Addictions

Delta Toronto East Hotel.

"Transformation: Evolution or Revolution?", the theme of Making Gains
2006, examines the response of mental health and addictions to rapid
change in the healthcare system. This year's conference will put the
spotlight on how to make change for the better, and truly transform the
system into one that works better for consumers and families. It is in
our responses to transformation both individually and collectively that
will determine whether this happens. How we manage the change--maintain
a positive focus on the needs of consumers and their families by
forging new partnerships and collaborations leading to better outcomes
and quality of life--is the challenge of transformation.

Transformation, whether it be evolutionary or revolutionary, will
extend us beyond our traditional boundaries and will challenge us to
think broadly and boldly of how to incorporate the determinants of
health as we conduct research, plan, develop, and implement the
necessary services for consumers, families and our communities.
