Welcome to the Community Networks of Specialized Care

Through collaboration and coordination, we build efficient and effective cross-sectoral specialized service systems that support people with a developmental disability and mental health needs and/or challenging behaviour.
 
The Community Networks of Specialized Care (CNSC) are a way of linking specialized services and professionals to pool their expertise to treat and support adults who have developmental disabilities and mental health needs and/or challenging behaviours (ie. dual diagnosis) in the communities where they live. The Networks bring together people from a variety of sectors including developmental services, health, research, education and justice in a common goal of improving the coordination, access and quality of services for these individuals who have complex needs.

Provincially, the Networks collaborate in the following areas in an effort to increase community capacity to support individuals with complex needs:
