No, keep pharmaceutical companies out of it and stop drugging so many people that don’t need it.

@97T4JZCConservativefrom Ontario  answered…2wks

yes, if we can afford it, and incentivize private companies to address the issue and lower cost

@96R332Nfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

Maintain funding but surge funding if there is a large population of depressed Canadians.

@95JD49Zfrom British Columbia  answered…3mos

Yes, and we need to create and re-open mental institutions for helping and assisting people who need it rather than having them wander the streets and attacking people.

@94JY26RPeople’s Partyfrom Quebec  answered…3mos

This is not a top priority. Implementation is more important than funding and we should not be focused on it until we greatly reduce inflation and the national debt.

@936KWVLfrom Alberta  answered…6mos

Absolutely. I've lost far too many good friends/family to mental illness

@9368W6Dfrom British Columbia  answered…6mos

Yes, and rebuild large-scale inpatient facilities to reverse de-institutionalization

 @michaelconnely from Nebraska answered…7mos

Our medical establishment is corrupt and needs completely redesigned.

@92JJNYMfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

Yes, and expand funding to provide services from a wider range of providers including non-clinical programs (coaches, workshops, etc) that meet a set standard.

@92DQP2K from Pennsylvania answered…8mos

Yes and also incentivize private companies to address this issue as well.

@8ZN4YG4from British Columbia  answered…9mos

Yes, we should have options open/standards for provinces to accept this as a necessary service to include as part of their plan.

@8Y52KR8from Ontario  answered…11mos

Yes, but it's more important to address the root cause of the mental health issues (e.g. poverty, COVID)

@8XZNFFCfrom British Columbia  answered…12mos

@8XPV4DF from South Carolina answered…12mos

Yes, this would help decrease the homeless population in some places

@8XJ8R6Vfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

No, provide funding directly to the municipality to dispense with appropriately for that locale.

@8V8GV2Lfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

No, companies abuse and take advantage of people with mental health issues.

@8V7C4Z7Bloc Québécoisfrom Quebec  answered…1yr

The government should transfer the responsability to private companies and cooperatives

@8V76GNDNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Yes, and education should be a partner in health and well being with an early focus on interpersonal skill set development, self awareness, self soothing, self regulation, delay gratification, problem solving and communications. These are the fundamental tools for safe and healthy relationship building, key to supporting overall health and well being. We need to see mental haleth as part of, not separate from physical health.

@8TV636Bfrom Newfoundland  answered…1yr

No, but redistribute and reassess current funding - the current system is clearly not working and needs to be revamped. One of the biggest problems is incompetent “professionals” being employed in positions in which they have no training (i.e. social workers in mental health counselling positions) which is actually unethical.

@8TN4GLWfrom Quebec  answered…1yr

No, and decrease funding until Canada’s debt goes down and its deficit is eliminated.

@8TJ222Sfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

yes, it would bring more awareness to the importance and extremity of mental health

@8THTM9VLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, our healthcare system needs more funding to provide a higher quality of care and services, but focus the majority of funding towards personalized care rather than pharmaceutical companies

@8SRCS7Jfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

The funding for mental health research now, in my opinion, is enough. It doesn't need to be increased nor decreased.

@8SM79NBfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

@8S94ZNVfrom Ontario  answered…2yrs

More research needs to be funded for mental health, with less emphasis on pharmaceutical promotion
