What is Portico

Portico is a network of addiction and mental health sites from across Canada.

Portico offers clinical tools and evidence-based materials for health care providers, social service workers and others. While the resources on the core Portico pages are designed for professional use, they can be of equal interest to those with lived experience and their families.

Portico hosts partner sites that are built and run by other groups and networks. They are editorially independent of the main site, with a variety of perspectives.

Portico's search engine includes our partners and a wide range of external addiction and mental health sites to help you find what you need.
