12 May CCACs hiring Mental Health & Addictions Nurses (RN/RPN)

As part of an important new initiative in Ontario, the CCACs are hiring Mental Health & Addictions Nurses to work in the district school boards to identify and help students with mental health and addiction issues.

One in five children and youth in Ontario have a mental health disorder.  Studies have shown that early identification and intervention can lead to improved school achievement, better health outcomes and cost-savings to the health care and social service systems.

In support of this important new initiative, the CCACs are directly hiring 131 nurses across Ontario with mental health and addictions expertise to support school boards and students.

Applications are due May 28, 2012.  Click here for more information.
