Expert to present recommendations on youth mental health in Cape Breton
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.
