Community Networks of Specialized Care 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.
