Centre for Addiction and Mental Health - CAMH

This is a Contract position in Toronto, ON posted January 12, 2022.

Senior Project Manager
Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program
Provincial System Support Program

The Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health works with communities, service providers and other partners across Ontario to move evidence to action to create sustainable, system-level change. With offices in Toronto and across the province, PSSP is on the ground collaborating with stakeholders to build a better system through our work in implementation, knowledge exchange, evaluation, information management, health equity and engagement.

Position Description
PSSP is providing project management, implementation, program development, data and evaluation, training, and health equity and engagement support for the overarching Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program (OSP). The Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program (OSP) provides publicly funded evidence-based psychotherapy and related approaches to Ontarians with depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related conditions through a stepped-care approach, using measurement-based care. It is a key initiative of Ontario’s Roadmap to Wellness. OSP is funded and supported by the Ministry of Health (MOH), with the Mental Health and Addictions Centre of Excellence (MHA CoE) at Ontario Health (OH) providing program oversight and implementation leadership.

Reporting to the Senior Director of PSSP and a member of PSSP’s Programmatic Leadership Team (PLT), the Senior Project Manager will work closely with internal partners across CAMH and PSSP, external service providers, partners, MHA-CoE, and MoH. The incumbent will be responsible for providing strategic and hands-on leadership for the planning, management and execution of PSSP functions in support of the successful implementation and operations of the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program.
