Today was the official launch of the Bring It Home campaign, calling for increased funding for existing funding for mental health housing. For many years, there has been limited increases in funding for housing providers despite the increase cost of running programs. Year after year we have to advocate strongly for housing despite the fact that community housing is far less expensive than the cost of institutional care.
Wonderful press conference was held this morning led by our colleagues at ACL and inclusive of peers, families and providers.
The Press Release is attached. Look for more information and articles in the coming days. We will need your continued grassroots support to help increase funding in this year’s budget.
