Overhauling mental health and addictions services

Today, 11 ministries across government deliver a patchwork of programs and services for mental health and addictions. The result is predictable and damaging: a confusing, hard-to-navigate system with far too many cracks for people to fall into.

We have to do better, and we can. Instead of tinkering with a broken system, let’s transform mental health care for the better.
