What is Portico Network?

Portico Network is a collaborative platform that:

  • encourages collaboration among clinicians, social service professionals, educators, clients and families
  • facilitates knowledge exchange and the collaborative creation of tools and resources
  • provides tools and resources that can be used in day-to-day practice.

Portico Network is designed for mental health and addiction professionals and people who encounter mental health and addictions in their daily work.

We encourage clients, families and the public to use the information and resources and to ask questions, make recommendations and add their voices to the open discussion forums.
