Systems Enhancement Evaluation Initiative (SEEI)

The Systems Enhancement Evaluation Initiative (SEEI) was a five-year research project (2004-2009) funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, through the OMHF, to evaluate the effects of investments in the province’s community mental health system. Coordinated by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the nine projects of SEEI sought to explore the impacts of these investments on people with mental illness, their families, and the health system more broadly. The Evidence Exchange Network – under its original name, the Ontario Mental Health and Addictions Knowledge Exchange Network (OMHAKEN) – provided knowledge exchange for SEEI, connecting the research to stakeholders throughout Ontario.
