MENTAL HEALTH PETITIONS
As we continue with the COVID-19 Pandemic, many people may still be feeling the stress of isolation, financial stress, anxiety, or many other factors. Access to care is becoming more limited and peoples ability to be able to pay for such services has become even more restricted. View information about each of these petitions below that each have a cause to add mental healthcare to the Universal Healthcare Act and to add mental healthcare coverage to OHIP in Ontario.

Universal Mental Health Care in Canada Petition
This petition is asking the federal government, the House of Commons, and all federal party leaders to create legislation to incorporate mental health services in the Canada Health Act. This will cause provinces to incorporate mental health services in their provincial health insurance plans.
Mental Health Coverage by OHIP in Ontario Petition
With many people not being able to afford mental health care that they need due to the high costs and sometimes hidden costs after getting the treatment they need, this petition calls for mental health coverage to be added to OHIP in Ontario.
Parliament of Canada Mental Health Legislation Petition
The global COVID-19 crisis has caused major issues with the mental health wellness of Canadians and the addictions crisis in this country is causing unprecedented deaths and harm to Canadians.
We the Citizens of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to create and pass legislation to include all mental health and psychological treatments as part of the national healthcare scheme.
This petition proposed by MP Paul Lefebvre of Sudbury closes on 1 June 2021 at 11:34am.
