Province to build housing for mentally ill


An article published in today's edition of The Chronicle Herald:
The Nova Scotia government is spending $8.6 million on new housing units for people recovering from mental illness.

The government says the units are for people who are moving from inpatient care into the community.

The four community living units will consist of 10 bedrooms and living space.

The province says they will be built on the Nova Scotia Hospital property in the Halifax suburb of Dartmouth.

The Capital District Health Authority and the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia are contributing about $1.7 million, bringing the total cost of the project to $10.3 million.

Construction is scheduled to begin this summer.

How many times will the Government of Nova Scotia announce funding for the same project?
