Individuals with serious mental health and addictions conditions frequently identify housing as one of the most important factors in achieving and maintaining their health. However, for many, maintaining safe and affordable housing can be difficult.
That’s why CMHA Ontario calls on political parties to commit to urgently-needed investments in supportive housing for Ontarians in need.
CMHA Ontario recognizes that having a place to call home improves outcomes from even severe mental health and addictions problems. Supportive housing can decrease problematic drug and alcohol use and has the potential to improve physical health.
CMHA Ontario is asking people to visit erasethedifference.ca, and sign a petition that calls on political parties to fund mental health and addictions care like physical health care.
Join thousands of Ontarians in letting provincial candidates know that it’s time to #erasethedifference.
