Funding Their Futures
This petition had 120 supporters
The suicide rate in indigenous youth is seven times the national average. Despite 127.3 million dollars being designated to indigenous health services, only 11.3 million dollars have been spent. There needs to be equal opportunity for access to services amongst ALL Canadians, especially for a stigmatized topic like mental health. We are advocating for both increased funding of mental health services in Aboriginal communities, or increased use of the currently 'allotted' funds, and an increase in transparency as to how these funds are being used.
