Well… if you have made it this far… it is probably because of two reasons. First, it is probably like watching a train wreck that you cannot turn away from. Second, my story just might be that interesting. Either way, this last essay will outline what I have learned about Ontario’s dysfunctional mental health system at the hands of the associate minister of Mental Health and Addictions (MHA) and the Minister of Health; what improvements I think could be deployed within the MHA system to help make it more effective; and what I have learned about understanding the self so that the self can be understood, including which modalities have worked for me.
