Canadian Health Care - First Mental Health Strategy Delivered to Federal Government
As providers of health insurance plans for Canadians, it’s important to us that we are able to provide customized plans to meet healthcare needs. We recently read a great article on Huffington Post about a National Mental Health Strategy that outlines steps the government can take to improve the current healthcare system that support patients with mental health needs.
The Mental Health Commission of Canada delivered the mental health strategy that has over 100 recommendations targeting federal and provincial governments, health care professionals, businesses, and volunteers. The strategy encourages a focus on recovery from mental illness, and prevention. The total dollar figure isn’t disclosed, but urges governments to increase their health spending from seven percent to nine percent of their health spending for mental health. Officials are already in the process of finding ways to take action, and to involve communities and citizens alike.
As read on the Huffington Post website “Canada is about to get its first-ever national mental health strategy — a massive report that may persuade Prime Minister Stephen Harper that his government must return Ottawa to a lead role on health care. On Tuesday, after five years of research, consultations with thousands of people, modelling, forecasting and much agonizing, the Mental Health Commission of Canada will finally deliver the blueprint the Harper government requested.”
