Op-Ed: Psy.D. Program Answers Call for
Change in Mental Health

"We live in a wealthy province, yet many of our city’s residents are underserved — particularly in terms of access to mental health services. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson recently announced that Vancouver’s mental health crisis is becoming worse. We live in a diverse city, but there is considerable social inequity....To address these societal challenges, what we need are change agents: people who can assess, treat, research and advise on best practices to improve well-being for all."

In this op-ed for the Vancouver Sun, the Adler University's Larry Axelrod, Ph.D., and Cindy Weisbart, Psy. D., explore the mental health challenges facing Vancouver, British Columbia, as the Mental Health Commission of Canada's strategy for addressing them--and how the Adler University will take part through its new Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) program in Vancouver.

Dr. Weisbart is Program Director of the Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology Program, and Dr. Axelrod is the Dean of the Adler University of Professional Psychology in Vancouver.
