INVITATION: M-174 TOWN HALL MEETING

Updated: Aug 21, 2018

Friends,

If you are in the GTA then I'd like to invite you to an important Town Hall Meeting happening on Wednesday, August 22nd in Scarborough.

As many of you know, earlier this year, I launched the campaign Not One More. My private member’s motion, M-174, calls for a national suicide prevention action plan. There is an amazing grassroots movement of activists, Indigenous leaders and health activists who are showing us the way forward.

But there is a growing urgency and government continues to drop the ball and lives are at stake. 

At the federal level, an amazing national suicide prevention line is in danger of shutting down because the Trudeau government is refusing to ensure adequate funding. You can read my recent letter to the Federal Minister of Health, Ginette Petitpas Taylor by clicking this link.

In Ontario, the Doug Ford government is cutting $330 million from mental health services. These actions are wrong headed and we must push back.

Here are the details for the Town Hall Meeting to Support M-174:

Wednesday, August 22nd 6 - 8 pm The Hub, 2660 Eglinton Avenue East (Brimley & Eglinton), Scarborough

Panel speakers at this THM include:

Charlie Angus, MP Timmins - James Bay Doly Begum, MPP Scarborough Courtney Taylor - Co-founder of March for Mental Health Mark Henick - Advocate, TEDx talk "Why We Choose Suicide Mark Farrant - CAMH 150 Difference Maker and PTSD Survivor Mike Villeneuve - CEO Canadian Nurses Association

If you want to get involved but are unable to attend the meeting please click this link to read how you can support M-174 and the campaign #NotOneMore.

I would also ask that you please share this letter with people who care about mental health issues.

Thank you, Charlie
