Ontario Mental Health & Addictions Alliance:

The Time Has Come to Vote on Mental Health & Addictions

The parties have heard from thousands of Ontarians that the time is now to address mental health and addictions. They have been told that the next government must make this issue a priority, and affect real change.

The Alliance has each sent party a set or questions to get their final word on what they would do to improve access to mental health and addictions services.
