Can Mental Health Care Be Fixed?
Yet another great episode on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin! This one is about 30min in length and is talking about Canada’s first ever national mental health strategy!
Once again I had my say from the comfort of my couch via The Madvocates on Twitter!
How do I feel I’ve been let down by the system? I feel that I was not taken seriously, I feel that my psychiatrist was to quick to diagnose and medicate me, I feel my psychiatrist did not listen to me and he made me feel weak.
If you would like to check out the new strategy you can view it here: http://strategy.mentalhealthcommission.ca/pdf/strategy-images-en.pdf
It’s a great discussion and there is a lot of optimism for this new plan!
