More than 200 people gathered at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum to march for more mental health supports Friday morning.
Kye Ball committed suicide on March 20th, 2017 after a long time battle with mental illness.
His mother Wanda led the march that went from the museum down to the Legislature.
She said her son didn’t get the help he needed.
“There needs to be more services, more money invested, more training for teachers and RCMP,” she said. “Just more attention to this. These are kids and they’re dying.”
Ball’s optimistic that with this march and even more action taken that will drive eyes and ears to issues with the province’s existing mental health support services, change may come.
“That is our hope,” she said. “We hope that being here saves lives. We care.”
