Standing Committee Seeks Input on Mental Health Legislation

EDMONTON –The Standing Committee on Families and Communities is seeking public input on the changes introduced by the Mental Health Amendment Act, 2007.

“Mental health is an issue that affects many Albertans, and as such it is critical that all Albertans have the opportunity to join our discussions on the Mental Health Amendment Act, 2007,” said Heather Sweet, committee chair and MLA for Edmonton-Manning. “I encourage anyone with concerns regarding the criteria for involuntary admissions or the use of community treatment orders to provide their thoughts to the committee.”

The committee’s review focuses on two distinct areas:

  • the criteria for involuntary admission of persons with mental disorders to health care facilities; and
  • the use of community treatment orders for persons requiring ongoing mental health services.

Interested parties are encouraged to provide written submissions to the committee by February 29, 2016.Submissions should be forwarded to the Standing Committee on Families and Communities, c/o Committee Clerk, 3rd Floor, 9820-107 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, T5K 1E7, or to [email protected].
