MEDIA ADVISORY: Exploring the Role of the Federal Government in Mental Health

May 31, 2015

In partnership with the Canadian Psychiatric
Association and the Canadian Psychological Association, The Economic
Club of Canada is pleased to host a representative from each major
federal political party as they share their perspectives on the role of
the federal government in supporting the mental health of Canadians.
While the federal government has direct responsibilities for a number of
populations (e.g. First Nations, Corrections Services, Military, Public
Servants), it also has an important collaborative and strategic role to
play with the provinces and territories when it comes to the provision
of mental health services and supports to Canadians.
