What is the new College and what does it mean for Ontarians?
Mental health has received increasing media coverage and awareness in the public sphere, thanks to many years of hard work from advocates who’ve worked on reducing the stigma associated with mental illness. More and more, we see people comfortable enough to come forward as they consider being more proactive about their own mental health, or continuing to seek treatment for existing disorders. If we have collectively learned anything over the past decade, it’s that - let's face it - we have to take our health care into our own hands. And when it comes to mental health care the Ontario system is, unfortunately, not universal.
