M. Fedeli propose,

Whereas, this year 1 in 5 people will experience mental illness; and,

Whereas, of all children who try to access mental health treatment, more than 40% are unable to access the treatment they need; and,

Whereas, there has been a 67% increase in hospitalizations for children with mental health disorders over the last ten years; and,

Whereas, the majority of people treated in an Ontario emergency room after a suicide attempt are not seen by a psychiatrist within six months; and,

Whereas, individuals seeking treatment for mental illness face extensive wait times upwards of 18 months; and,
