COMMUNITY NETWORK OF SPECIALIZED CARE FOR CENTRAL WEST REGION
Four networks of specialized care were established across the province by the Ministry of Community and Social Services (MCSS) as part of the transformation of developmental services. CWSDS has been home to the Network since 2009. The Community Networks of Specialized Care (CNSC) are a way of linking specialized services and professionals to pool their expertise to treat and support adults who have developmental disabilities and mental health needs and/or challenging behaviours (i.e. dual diagnosis) in the communities where they live. The Networks bring together people from a variety of sectors including developmental services, health, research, education and justice in a common goal of improving the coordination, access, and quality of services for these individuals who have complex needs.
The Central West Network of Specialized Care is sponsoring a two-day training event;
