Winnipeg musician and song writer Chantal Kreviazuk was speaking about mental health due to the 100-year anniversary of the Canadian Mental Health Association.
The singer said that in her opinion the solution of such problems should be approached very firmly and seriously. People should be enlightened and learn as much information as possible about such a terrible disease.
After all, no one is insured, and it is impossible to foresee the illness of someone from your family members. If one person is sick, then we can say that his whole family is sick. Kreviazuk noted that the CMHA is an important resource for all Canadian inhabitants.
The singer also added that she understands what it likes to be a Metis from Manitoba. Unfortunately, mental disorders are so common for Manitoba communities, and this province, the same as Maritimes or Saskatchewan gets all necessary resources much later than other advanced provinces. Manitoba really needs bigger resources to improve mental disorders treatment for its inhabitants.
Chantal Kreviazuk also took part in a big celebration of a 100-year anniversary of the association at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on November 15.
