Rising to the Challenge:

A strategic plan for the mental health and well-being of Manitobans

Rising to the ChallengeThis 6-point strategic plan is aimed at improving the mental health of Manitobans by addressing:

  • mental health and well being;
  • access to services;
  • innovation and research;
  • social inclusion;
  • family participation; and
  • workforce development.

To achieve these goals will take both a willingness and a desire on everyone's part, including governments, regional health authorities, mental health facilities, service organizations, schools and workplaces, private and public sectors, individuals, family members and communities. There is a necessary role for everyone in this five-year mental health strategic plan and its success will depend on a collective partnership and collaborative actions.

It is the time for everyone to rise to the challenge of introducing new, more, and better ways of enhancing mental health and well-being, and time for collaboration to achieve resilience and recovery for all Manitobans.
