Newfoundland and Labrador-focused Mental Health and Substance Use Services and Supports for People Leaving Correctional Settings

The provincial Department of Health and Community Services plays a lead role in supporting the four Regional Health Authorities and other mandated health and community service agencies that serve Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. The department is also the lead in the multi-departmental initiatives for wellness, healthy aging, and mental health and addictions.

The Mental Health and Addictions Division works in partnership with the Regional Health Authorities, community groups, the provincial Mental Health and Addiction Advisory Council and Recovery Council, family members and individuals with lived experience, as well as other stakeholders in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Note: this province-specific resource comes from the National Inventory of Mental Health and Substance Use Services and Supports. On that page, you will find the national inventory and links to the inventories for the other provinces and territories.
