P.E.I.'s disability support program has been expanded to include help for mental health problems, as the province continues to wait for a decision on a related Human Rights Commission case.

The expanded program will provide a single entry point for assistance for Islanders with disabilities, both physical and mental.

"Now persons with mental health illness will also be able to access the disability support program which they weren't in the past," said Family and Human Services Minster Tina Mundy.
