Project

Community Pharmacy Collaborative

Location

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Objective: 

To promote collaborative relationships between those suffering from mental illness and community pharmacists. Mobilizing community pharmacists (an underutilized group of health professionals) for the benefit of clients suffering from mental illness, through “knowledge nodes” that team pharmacists with individuals living with mental illness. These “nodes” will develop material that pharmacists can use to provide support to clients with mental health issues.

Impact: 

Three knowledge nodes (total six pharmacists and six individuals experienced with mental illness) will be developed. In turn, each “node” will reach out to five additional pharmacists.
