Imagine a world where all of your health needs – both physical and mental – are assessed, diagnosed and treated as a whole. Where you partner with your healthcare provider for the right help, at the right time, free from stigma and discrimination. A world where whole-person health is the standard of care.

This bold vision is the future of health care at UHN. As outlined in our Mental Health Strategy 2019-23, we are working to fully integrate physical and mental health in everything we do, for every patient, caregiver, provider and service UHN-wide.

Developed by a Core Working Group and with input from individuals across and external to UHN, the UHN Mental Health Strategy 2019-23 defines our mission: Whole Person Health for A Healthier World.

The plan describes three priorities that will enhance clinical care, research and education at the Centre for Mental Health:

  • Advance world-leading practices in the integration of physical and mental health.
  • Design and deliver seamless models of safe, quality care.
  • Build and grow a strong, sustainable program and culture.

These priorities will lay the foundation for how UHN will invent, inspire and deliver mental health services and lead the full integration of mental health into all aspects of physical health care. They are set within the framework of UHN's Strategic Plan 2019-23 — enabling both strategies to align with and support each other towards creating A Healthier World.
