Toronto, ON, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDIA ADVISORY  

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) is hosting a free, virtual discussion on mental health during the campaign period for the 44th federal election with award-winning journalist, André Picard, and candidates from all parties with seats in the House of Commons.

This event, held on World Suicide Prevention Day, is an opportunity for people to hear from candidates what steps each party take to ensure everyone can get timely access to the mental health support and treatment they need, no matter where they live.
