Ontario’s political parties reveal mental health and addiction positions
Three of Ontario’s major political parties – the Ontario Liberal Party, the Ontario NDP, and the Ontario PC Party – have responded to questions from the Vote4MHA campaign about where each party stands on mental health and addictions issues. The responses have been posted alongside the party platforms on the Vote4MHA website for voters to review before casting their ballot.
As part of its election work, the Ontario Mental Health and Addictions Alliance sent each of Ontario’s four major political parties – the Green Party of Ontario, the Ontario Liberal Party, the Ontario New Democratic Party, and the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party – six questions about mental health and addictions. The questions address a range of issues including: access to services, supports for children and youth, access to supportive housing, and the need for coordinated government leadership.

It’s not too late to take action: take two minutes to send the party leaders an email about why mental health and addictions should be a priority in Ontario.
