Last week the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) released Canada's first-ever national strategy to improve mental health for all Canadians. This is the first national-level mental health strategy for Canada, and is the product of years of research by the Mental Health Commission, which was formed in 2007. This is a key document for Canadian professionals, policy-makers and organizations working in mental health and any the larger health-care system.
The report is titled "Changing Directions, Changing Lives: The Mental Health Strategy for Canada" and you can download the Strategy and its accompanying documents at http://strategy.mentalhealthcommission.ca/.
