WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government and United Way Winnipeg are partnering to deal with a growing need for mental health and addictions services.
The province is spending $2 million while United Way is contributing almost $3 million to support 45 community-based initiatives.
The organizations will use the money to improve wait times for counselling and provide culturally relevant programs.
All Manitobans will benefit from the new funding but especially marginalized people who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
