The province is investing in mental health for seniors in Antigonish.

Health Antigonish Society will get $47,000 for a virtual program, Art Larks!, led by professional music and art therapists, to help those who are lonely, by supporting social inclusion.

MLA Michelle Thompson says it’s an opportunity for parents and grandparents connect with each other through creativity.

It’s part of the $7.4 million the provincial government is putting toward mental health. Programs range in scope and variety, from focusing on specific mental health care to encouraging overall mental health and wellness.

An additional $3 million will go to the province’s Mental Health Foundation for grants to projects and services that need it the most.
