Access to Mental Health Care for Albertans with Disabilities

Alberta Disabilities Forum (ADF) established a working group to examine mental health concerns from a cross-disability
perspective to learn about the barriers that prevent people with disabilities from accessing mental health services. To this end, the ADF working group produced a document that provides recommendations to improve access to mental health services for people with disabilities. This document speaks to the issues of persons with disabilities and their need for mental health care.Click HERE to review ADF's report.
