The Canadian Collaborative Mental Health Initiative (CCMHI) completed Phase 1 of a highly successful 2-year Primary Health Transition Fund project in 2006. Through the creation of evidence-based research papers and a series of toolkits CCMHI developed a compelling case for improving mental health care in the primary health care setting through interdisciplinary collaboration, including collaboration among health care providers, consumers and caregivers.

Through its members organizations CCMHI  raised awareness of the benefits of collaborative mental health care and built enduring communities of interest committed to further efforts to improve mental health care (Charter).
