Welcome to the Ontario Psychiatric Outreach Program
The Ontario Psychiatric Outreach Program (OPOP), formed in 1999, is a collaborative and dynamic network of dedicated academics and practitioners in the mental health field, sharing expertise and resources to deliver clinical services and education to Ontario's rural, remote and under-serviced areas.
OPOP is committed to providing clinical service, education and support of the highest quality to communities throughout Ontario, particularly communities that are rural, remote or considered under-serviced in terms of mental health care. We will continually strive to provide multidisciplinary, contextually relevant, community-oriented service and education.

Thank you to all of the residents, faculty, northern colleagues, and peers who created digital stories related to working in outreach contexts. We enjoyed the video screenings at the #OPOP2017 Conference on November 10th.
Please stay tuned with next steps on the project!
Digital storytelling is a mode of creating and sharing stories through the use of technology. Your story can be developed from a poem, an emotion, music, an image, an object, or an existing story. Participants are encouraged to bring objects, photos or ideas related to their outreach experiences to the workshop. Facilitators will guide the development of stories as part of the workshop. Facilitation is by REDLAB – Re-visioning Difference Mobile Media Arts Lab. REDLAB uses arts and technology to engage participants in the use of story to explore experiences of marginalization, ability, and resilience.
It's not too late to enjoy the self-guided tour focusing on Indigenous and northern art at the AGO.
This session, “Looking through art” is a self-guided gallery tour focusing on Indigenous and northern art at the AGO. Download the brochure here.
