Welcome to the Dual Diagnosis Website of Peel and Halton Regions
On behalf of the Peel Region Committee for Persons with a Dual Diagnosis, I would like to welcome you to our dual diagnosis website.
This website has been developed for many reasons:
Staff and families want to know what specific programmes are being offered and where. This type of information changes so continually that it is not possible to keep up with it in print. However, our web site features ongoing services and new programmes, with links to the appropriate service providers.
Families want to talk to other families so that they can share ideas, support each other, and exchange information.
Since education and training are always rated as crucial issues in the improvement of services to persons with a dual diagnosis, this web site provides information on current best practices, links to training resources such as books and videos, and links to other organizations involved with dual diagnosis.
Staff want the opportunity to talk to staff outside their own agencies, in particular those from the "other" service system. By using this web site they can post questions asking for information/ suggestions. People could discuss coordination of their services. This results in staff being able to support each other and get feedback from someone else who has experience in a specific topic. This would ultimately result in better service provision for clients.
This web site has information pertaining to both Peel and Halton Regions. We hope that you will find it helpful. If you have any questions or information to add, please call the organization that is overseeing the web site, Child Development Resource Connection Peel, at 905-890-9432.
We would like to sincerely thank the Ministry of Community and Social Services and Ministry of Children's Services and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care which jointly funded the start up of this site. Better communication will lead to better services, a goal we can all support!
