Abstract

This Canadian Psychiatric Association position statement is focused on youth and young adults as mental illness and substance use disorders often begin in this age group, with the objective to ensure optimal mental health outcomes. The CPA recognizes the Canadian Medical Association’s (CMA) submission to the Task Force that covers recommendations related to overall health as well as mental health.
