Request for Input

The Legislative Standing Committee on Families and Communities has requested input on the changes to the Mental Health Act from 2007. These changes are known as the Mental Health Amendment Act, 2007.

The two main changes under review are “criteria for involuntary admission of persons with mental disorders to health care facilities” and “the use of community treatment orders for persons requiring ongoing mental health services” (Mental Health Amendment Act, 2007).

This fACT sheet will provide you with information about these changes, as well as the state of mental health in Alberta.

To share your comments about the act, send a written submission by February 29, 2016, to the Standing Committee on Families and Communities:
