Mental Health, Addictions and Treatment:
As a former foster child in British Columbia I am only too aware of the effects that childhood housing  / home stability have on the mental health of our young people. Poverty plays a key role in that as does education, all of this is best exemplified in what has happened in indigenous communities, and a large part of the solution I believe is in improving the financial and educational plight of all people. Additive behavior has been around since the dawn of humanity thus it is likely to remain a problem and I think new ways of looking at narcotics and to mitigate the harm should be pursued, while reinforcing treatment options.
