Contributors talk about the Mental Health Strategy of Canada

Changing Directions, Changing Lives, released in May 2012, is the first mental health strategy for Canada. It aims to help improve the mental health and well-being of all people living in Canada, and to create a mental health system that can truly meet the needs of people living with mental health problems and illnesses and their families.  

In this video, the people who made #MHCCStrategy possible share their points of view on why Canada needs a national mental health strategy.
