The NDP are echoing calls for the Conservatives to create a Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions.

This is in response to a letter written by Noah Irvine, a prominent mental health advocate, urging the PC's to improve the mental health system.

NDP Mental Health and Addictions Critic Bhutila Karpoche says "the failures of the system are tearing families apart and hurting people who need help."

In a release, the NDP say the Liberals poorly funded mental health initiatives and Doug Ford's government funding cut is making it even worse.
