Public hearings on Bill 55: Mental Health Act

July 14, 2015 - Members of the Legislative Assembly Standing Committee on Social programs will be conducting public hearings on Bill 55: Mental Health Act. The bill will replace the current Mental Health Act, which is outdated and is now out of step with mental-health legislation elsewhere in Canada.

The Committee is pleased to inform you that it will convene public hearings throughout the territory during late summer and early fall 2015.

Please find attached a letter from the Committee inviting the general public to attend a meeting and express views on Bill 55. Public Hearings - Mental Health Act.
