The Provincial Government has announced $140,000 for Community Addictions and Mental Health Grants.
Successful initiatives focused on one or more of six priority areas:
Increasing awareness and understanding of problematic substance use
Reducing alcohol-related harms
Developing supportive communities
Mental health promotion
These grants also complement the goals of the Provincial Government’s Opioid Action Plan which aims to reduce risks associated with opioid addiction in the province.
Thirty-six groups will receive funding for their proposals.
