HALIFAX — An ado­les­cent men­tal health ex­pert will present the prov­ince with rec­om­men­da­tions to ad­dress youth men­tal health in Cape Bre­ton to­day.

Dr. Stan Kutcher will be joined by Health and Well­ness Min­is­ter Randy Delorey and Ed­u­ca­tion and Early Child­hood De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Zach Churchill for the an­nounce­ment at 11 a.m. at One Gov­ern­ment Place in Halifax.

Three mid­dle school stu­dents in the Cape Bre­ton-Vic­to­ria Re­gional School Board killed them­selves this school year. Kutcher and a team of men­tal health clin­i­cians vis­ited Cape Bre­ton in June to speak with fam­i­lies, schools and com­mu­nity mem­bers to learn more the sit­u­a­tion.
