13 29TH ANNUAL CRIME PREVENTION GUIDE On behalf of the City of Summerside I would like to congratulate the PEI Police Association on the publication of their 29th Annual Crime Prevention Guide. This year’s theme “Mental Health Awareness” is an important topic for our citizens and our community as a whole. This guide is designed to inform the public on this important issue and provide information on the resources available on PEI. Mental health care is offered in hospitals and in community health facilities across the province. There are also help lines with free, 24-hour, bilingual, confidential, non-judgmental and supportive service and mental health walk-in clinics offered in all 3 counties to offer immediate support to help with anxiety, as well as life events causing stress and other mental health issues. The City of Summerside is proud to be a part of this publication and its efforts to inform our population about Mental Health Awareness and the importance of talking about mental health problems and the ways to achieve and maintain positive mental health. I extend congratulations to all police officers whose dedication and commitment help ensure the safety of our residents and visitors to our community every day. You contribute greatly to our exceptional quality of life on PEI and for that we thank you. Sincerely, Mayor Basil L. Stewart City of Summerside
