Mark has an in-depth conversation with Dr. Sonu Gaind and Dr. Harvey Schipper about the concerns that mental health advocates have with Canada's new medical assistance in dying regime for people solely experiencing a mental illness. They discuss the unique difficulties with defining and treating mental illnesses, the impossibility of predicting irremediability, and the ethical implications of ending the lives of people who governments are failing to help live and thrive. Watch for the extended conversation with Dr. Schipper, to be posted next week!
