Province to implement mental health panel recommendations

The province will implement four recommendations from a mental health panel to help support children and youth.  Better coordination through schools is one, with a $4.4 million investment by 2019-20 in SchoolsPlus to add 51 new mental health clinicians, SchoolsPlus facilitators and community outreach workers.  The Departments of Health and Early Childhood and Education, Health Authority and IWK will work together on the recommendations.
