Mr. Speaker, I rise today to advise the House that Premier MacLauchlan and I will be joining partners and staff later this afternoon to make an important announcement regarding youth mental health services.
We will provide details on:
- the establishment of a new Youth Mental Health Day Treatment Program
- enhanced programming for youth with acute mental health needs
- and more support for children with significant behavioural disorders.
Mr. Speaker, these are the next steps our government is taking to build a modern mental health care system in Prince Edward Island… now that the Youth Recovery Centre for youth with mental health and addiction needs is operational.
Thank you Mr. Speaker.
