The numbers are alarming and have been on the rise over the last decade. When you consider the entire population of Canada is 35 million people you start to comprehend the magnitude and impact that mental health issues can have in your community.
This voting season should be viewed as a great window of opportunity to pressure your local senator to take action on mental health issues immediately. The squeaky wheel always get the grease my friends! The statistics are rather gloomy when it comes to politicians actually following through with their action plans with mental health, accountability needs to be driven from civil uproar to make their words reality.
