The new CRCT web site, which went 'live' in early June 2005, is a special project of CRCT Health Promotion Program. The web site attempts to meet the information needs of consumer/survivors, family members, service providers and others. It makes available information about mental health-related news, events, resources, and programs in a timely manner.
If you have any comments or suggestions for the web site, you may contact CRCT's Web Site Content Manager Glen Dewar using the email form accessed through the "feedback or corrections" link in the lower right corner of all pages on the CRCT web site.
