ECHO Ontario Superhub

Until recently, training to implement the ECHO model was provided exclusively by the University of New Mexico. With the movement spreading quickly, Superhub sites have been developed to train and support new ECHO projects. The ECHO Ontario Superhub, a collaboration between CAMH and UHN, serves new ECHO projects in Ontario and in Canada.

Along with training, the ECHO Ontario Superhub:

  • Leads provincial ECHO initiatives:
    - monthly ECHO Ontario collaborative meetings
    - an annual ECHO Ontario conference
    - strategic planning support for the growth of the ECHO Model in Ontario

  • ​Provides all existing, new and potential ECHO programs in Ontario with ongoing mentorship

  • ​Leads the development and implementation of quality improvement frameworks for ECHO programs in Ontario

  • ​Acts as an agent of the ECHO Institute to expand the ECHO Model in Ontario
