She noted that the Central West and Mississauga Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) remain among the lowest funded in the Province, with a wait list of one to two years for intensive case management services. The average wait time for supportive housing for people with serious mental illness is 2.5 years.

Sandy Milakovic indicated that the 10 year Strategy for Mental Health and Addiction will be released in 2011 and will include content from the Minister’s Advisory Group (MAG) formed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Ontario Legislature’s Select Committee on Mental Health and Addictions. She referenced the report titled “Review of the Roots of Youth Violence”, which connects the issues of poverty, mental illness and youth violence, noting that these issues cannot be dealt with in silos and moving forward, should be jointly addressed.

Regional Chair Kolb stated his commitment to addressing child poverty in the Region of Peel and thanked Sandy Milakovic for providing the update. He indicated the need for the Federal Government to be more proactive in investing in the people of Canada, especially those most vulnerable in the community.

Councillor Starr inquired where people with serious mental health issues on the waiting list for supportive housing are currently living. Sandy Milakovic responded that most people are living with friends or relatives, in shelters or in sub-standard housing with poor living conditions. She noted there may be more members in the community with serious mental health issues looking for housing but who have not submitted a formal application.

Councillor Paterak indicated that the disposal of Freon is a serious issue and suggested that the Region consider an arrangement with a private company whereby white goods are collected from the residence or garage instead of at the curb.
