Did you know that right now in Canada, when you are diagnosed with a Mental Health illness, the doctor will tell you to get councelling. You are left on your own to try and find that care. If and when you do find it, you then have to find the money to pay for the councelling. This is wrong. You have been diagnosed with an illness but you must pay for your care to get well, and it's not cheap. If you are diagnosed with any other illness, OHIP pays for your treatment and the doctor who diagnosed you will send a referral for your follow-up care.
This is not right. Mental Health illness must be treated the same as other illnesses. Please click the following link to sign a petition by the CMHA to demand this change. Show your support, please sign.
