> Endorsement Letter 2010

On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan and the Ministry of Health, it gives me great pleasure to offer our support for the Maternal Mental Health Strategy: Building Capacity in Saskatchewan, and the MotherFirst initiative.

The provision of mental health services is an integral and important component of the health system in Saskatchewan. Our government is committed to improving access to mental health services, and meeting the health needs of women and their families.

I commend the supporters of this initiative and their efforts to improve the lives of women. Our government and the Ministry of Health support the MotherFirst recommendations and offer our commitment to the development of guidelines and policies to ensure each health region is providing the best possible maternal mental health care services.

Together we can work to increase awareness and promote positive solutions that will improve women’s mental health, and ensure healthy, safe environments for Saskatchewan families.

Honourable Don McMorris,
Minister of Health

Regina, Saskatchewan
