Stop Doug Ford from cutting Mental Health Care

TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:


WHEREAS Doug Ford has announced a $335 million per year funding
cut to mental health care and services,


WHEREAS an estimated 12,000 children are waiting up to 18 months
for mental health care, and there are 63 per cent more children in the ER
for mental health issues than there were in 2006,


WHEREAS a cut to already-threadbare mental health funding will
mean longer waits for care and fewer services — which can result in
mental health conditions being exacerbated, and more people living
with mental illness spiraling into crisis,


WHEREAS front-line care workers and first responders are doing the
best they can, but coping with a shortage of resources,


THEREFORE we the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly
of Ontario
to reverse Doug Ford’s $330 million per year funding cut to
Ontario’s mental health services.
