Mental health problems range from mental stress and strain to severe disorders. Mental health is as important as physical health and spiritual health to our overall well-being.

The Province of Manitoba's mental health services include:

  • promoting good mental health
  • identifying and intervening early in mental illness
  • helping people living with mental health disorders

If your family doctor or Employee Assistance Plan refers you, Manitoba Health pays for the services of a psychiatrist. To find a psychiatrist in your area contact your local regional health authority or ask your family doctor.
