mental health awareness and funding

                  Addressing mental health is extremely important. My plan to address this issue starts with ensuring sustainable funding by the federal government for access to mental health services. Not only should the government fund mental health services, the government also needs to measure, manage and monitor mental health system performance. Currently, there are no Canadian mental health indicators to assess the performance of mental health programs and services at the federal, provincial, and municipal level. This is something I want to change. My final idea in my plan is for the government to invest in social infrastructure. Programs that support economic and social well -being are compassionate, evidence –based preventative health strategies that can produce significant long –term cost savings. Improving social elements of health can transform the lives of those living with mental illness. I would recommend that the federal government considers social infrastructure in a more comprehensive way.
