More beds at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Mental Health & Substance Use Patients

I was happy to join Minister Brandy Payne this morning to announce new mental health and substance use beds at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.

As a busy inner city hospital, the Alex has long needed increased capacity to help those in distress and these 16 additional beds will go a long way to address that need.

This investment follows through on our government's commitment to improving our systems of mental health care and helping end the stigmas around mental illness.

I look forward to continuing to work with our Ministers of Health to follow through on the recommendations of last year's Mental Health Review report and make life better for Albertans.
