Improve the Canadian Mental Health System

Canada’s mental health care system is grossly inadequate for those suffering from mental illness with all types of disabilities. I am just one example of many people in need that the system has failed to help due to insufficient resources. Short-term mental health facilities that can provide me with the care I need have waitlists up to two years long. 

Sign this petition to improve Canada’s mental health care system to support those with disabilities!

On Monday, December 4th, 2017, I was released from the psychiatric ward. I have been suffering from mental illness since I was ten years old. I have been suicidal – on and off – for the past little while.

Since being in the hospital, I have been put on a new medication that is meant to help with the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. That part is fantastic news. However, I have been put on many waitlists that are sometimes up to two years long for the help I need. This needs to end.

Please sign this petition if you believe that everyone deserves adequate treatment for their mental health issues, including acceptance and treatment programs. The Canadian government should make the necessary changes to ensure help is available to everyone.
