We would like to hear your perspective!

Participate in a virtual focus group about system-level challenges and enablers to adopting the care outlined in the Health Quality Ontario Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) quality standards.

We are interested in hearing from a cross-section of professionals from a broad range of organizations who are working to deliver care for children, youth, and adults living with anxiety disorders and OCD, including but not limited to front-line staff, program managers, and senior leaders. Your feedback will inform the recommendations for adoption developed by Health Quality Ontario to support uptake of the quality standards.

Quality standards outline for clinicians and patients what quality care looks like.  Focusing on conditions or topics where there are large variations in how care is delivered, or where there are gaps between the care provided in Ontario and the care patients should receive, quality standards are grounded in the best evidence. In the areas of mental health and addictions, Health Quality Ontario has released standards for:

  • Major Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Dementia


You may have participated in focus groups related to the adoption of the above standards. Thank you. Your perspective is valuable and we appreciate your input.
The Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) will be hosting a number of discussion groups on behalf of Health Quality Ontario through Adobe Connect web conferencing software, with approximately 8–14 participants per group. Each session will focus on a specific area of service delivery:

  1. Identification and Assessment of Anxiety Disorders and OCD (November 22, 12 noon– 1:15 PM)
  2. Monitoring and Follow-Up for People with Anxiety Disorders and OCD (November 23, 12 noon-1:15 PM)
  3. Managing Anxiety Disorders: The Stepped Care Approach (November 26, 12 noon–1:15 PM)
  4. Effective Approaches to Managing OCD (November 28, 12 noon–1:15 PM)
