Overview of the Inquiry:
Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction

We are committed to making recommendations that are pragmatic and implementable, with a focus on short and long-term solutions at the national and local level.
We want to build on the good work that is already being done, while looking to system-level change that will improve both promotion of good mental health and support for people with mental health challenges and/or addictions.
