Building Mental Health Policies into All Policies
March 6, 2023 | MPP Candidate, Sandrine Desforges, wrote an article on integrating mental health in all policies (MHIAP). She wrote that this approach would seek to promote mental health and well-being by expanding the scope of the efforts dedicated to improving population mental health to all policies. She also added that a MHIAP approach would require all sectors to take into account the potential mental health implications of all decisions.
"It’s time our leaders stop treating mental health in a vacuum. It’s time to think about mental health in all the policies we build for the future."
