Ontario Green’s Mental Health Plan

Let’s Make Mental Health Care Available for All

Mental Health looks different for everybody, which is why Ontario Greens have a plan to satisfy the challenge of providing accessible, and culturally appropriate health care to all Ontarians. Where mental health care is destigmatized, meets people where they live, starts with a give attention to prevention, and expands support for addictions and community services.

Ten priorities to enhance mental health care in Ontario:

  1. Expand access to mental health and addiction care under OHIP.
  2. Increase mental health and addiction spending to 10% of our health budget.
  3. Develop a 3 digit dedicated crisis response line and health-focused crisis response teams to answer mental health and substance related calls.
  4. Reduce waitlists to 30 days or less for youngsters’s mental health services.
  5. Support Indigenous-led clinics and healing programs for mental health.
  6. Create a dedicated Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions.
  7. Decriminalize drug use, expand protected consumption sites, and shift funding from the justice system to healthcare.
  8. Construct 60,000 everlasting supportive housing spaces with wrap-around mental health and other supports.
  9. Enhance mental well-being with connected communities and expanded access to nature trails, parks and guarded greenspace.
  10. Spend money on more Youth Wellness Hubs and community centres that supply access to local mental health services, spaces for social interaction, and supports for families.
