Nice to see that a Mental Health Facility has such good work practices and that people with mental health issues are so closely watched. ANd they wonder how episodes like that person who beheaded a student on a Greyhound Bus a couple years back happen?!

Slim... keep in mind that people with mental health issues are not always dangerous. Many just can't cope, whether due to depression, anxiety or other such issues.

1 in 5 Canadians will suffer from some form of mental health issue.

btw - The Greyhound incident was perpetrated by Someone who was NOT, until the incident, a "mental patient," and in fact had up until then been described as "reliable, hard-working and not showing any signs of trouble."

To Sam C....about the guy from the Greyhound bus who is NOW on supervised day passes and around public??? Unbelievable....if we were like some parts of the United States he wouldn't be breathing again (which should be the case), just like the poor guy he attacked AND canabalized!!! REALLY????

Big deal

Sam c didn't say he thought the " bus guy" should be out. He was merely making a point that not all mentally ill people are dangerous, and that the perpetrator in that case was not actually a patient. Mental health issues are very common and they can happen to any one of us at anytime. The " let's talk campaign" did an extraordinary job of raising money for mental illness though it would appear it hasn't raised enough awareness!! Mental illness affects not just the individual but also their loved ones. The costs to society are enormous as well. People not affected by it should be thankful every day rather than spending even a second putting down or pointing a finger at those who live with such disorders..... Compassion people.....
