DONATIONS TO THE CAGP
The CAGP actively promotes initiatives focusing on the mental health of the Canadian elderly population. As a national organization we recognize the growing need for geriatric psychiatrists evidenced in the growth of the elderly population and lack of access in many Canadian regions.
Donations pledged can also be directed towards supporting advocacy initiatives, educational opportunities, the Canadian Coalition for Seniors' Mental Health, as well as more generally to support the various projects undertaken by the CAGP.
