Sioux Lookout calls out for help to deal with mental health, addictions issues – APTN News

Officials in a small town in northwestern Ontario say they’re in desperate need of help to
deal a mental health, addictions and homelessness crisis.

“An ongoing crisis, it’s been here for really decades and it’s growing and growing,” Mayor
Doug Lawrance told APTN News.

Sioux Lookout, about 400 km north of Thunder Bay, is a service hub for dozens of First
Nations.
“And so there’s been now a migration of people from the north and then people brought out
for justice reasons and health care reasons,” said Lawrance. “And many of those people
who end up here on the streets are here with mental health, addictions issues.”

And help for mental health and addictions isn’t close by.
