No Mention Of Perinatal Mental Health In 2021 Federal Budget

Though we are extremely disappointed that there is no mention of Perinatal Mental Health Care — at all — in the 2021 Canadian federal budget unveiled April 19th, we are hopeful that the government’s promise of $20 million over 5 years to support a new National Institute for Women’s Health Research will include perinatal mental health research.

We are also encouraged to see the government supporting other long called for national strategies such as a National Autism Strategy, Strategic Research on Pediatrician Cancer, and National Universal Pharmacare.

Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too much longer for a National Perinatal Mental Health Strategy.
