This chapter describes a project that strived to transform community mental health services for diverse cultural-linguistic communities in two Ontario communities. It notes that mainstream mental health services have not done a good job of engaging different cultural-linguistic communities. In this five-year, community-based participatory action research project, stakeholders shared their conceptions of mental health, mental illness, and treatment and collaboratively created a number of innovative services and supports for cultural-linguistic communities. Although promising, only one of these services received ongoing funding from the province’s Ministry of Health, suggesting that further understanding and appreciation from policy makers may be needed for the sustainability of such innovations.
