News Poor mental health in Ontario sparks strong comments SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Tuesday, Jun. 23rd, 2015 The Liberal government needs a wake up call. That comment comes from Nickel Belt MPP France Gelinas, who is talking about the number of Ontarians that are reporting poor mental health. The NDP Health Critic says that number is growing, and is putting the blame on the Liberals. Stats Can released a community health survey last week, which shows the number of people reporting poor or fair mental health has shot up 73% since 2003. Gelinas says it’s time to tackle Ontario’s mental health crisis, and reverse the trend.
