Another great conversation with Natalie Hake from the Canadian Mental Health Association. Natalie presented to the Finance Committee last summer which I am the Deputy Chair. The committee took Natalie’s presentation and made a $5 Million dollar recommendation to supporting mental health and the Crisis Line in BC. Statistically, in some cases over half of calls were not answered due to lack of support. This is an urgent need that needs government funding, and I will be looking to that recommendation being fulfilled in the Province’s budget this week in Victoria. ...
