Working together with community partners is the best way to support the mental wellness of all
Nova Scotians. This presentation will provide key information on Nova Scotia Health’s Mental Health
and Addictions Program (MHAP) new Online services and resources (found at MHAhelpNS.ca and
clicking "Online Tools"). The goal of these services is to promote wellness and recovery broadly in
communities. All of the Online tools are made available 24/7, at no cost, confidentially, securely, and
many in French. Nova Scotian’s may not always connect with MHAP but often access community
resources or programs, public libraries being a critical access point. Participants will leave with an
understanding of :

o MHAP Online mental health and addictions service basics (what it is and why we are offering)
o How Public Libraries can enhance support in addressing mental wellness and substance use
concerns in communities
o Impact of digital equity
o Overview of the new services available, how they can be used
o Tips and strategies for how to know when a service might benefit one of your service users
