Valuing mental health: Next steps

Description

In June 2015, Premier Rachel Notley announced that the Alberta Mental Health Review Committee would complete a comprehensive review of the mental health system in Alberta. The Committee released Valuing Mental Health: Report of the Alberta Mental Health Review Committee in February 2016. With guidance from stakeholder consultations and community suggestions, the Committee’s recommendations were synthesized into the 18 actions reflected in Valuing Mental Health (VMH): Next Steps, released in June 2017. VMH: Next Steps aligns with the Government of Alberta's community-based health vision by improving continuity of addiction and mental health services and supports within the health system and in the community. Its actions focus on coordinating and integrating services across health and with community service providers with an emphasis on meeting the needs of vulnerable and underserved groups.

Government, community partners, and service providers will need to remain committed to the collaborative approach required to continue progress on this journey.
