The issue of the shortfall of psychologists in Canada’s P.E.I. schools has been raised in a recent debate, The Charlottetown Guardian reported November 26th. According to the article, “Questions raised about school psychologist shortage in P.E.I.” opposition MLA James Aylward questioned Education Minister Alan McIsaac on what he is doing to address this situation, and the minister answered that the shortfall is due to a shortage of these health professionals across the region. However, Aylward retorted, ‘You have a responsibility to ensure Island students have access to the supports they need. Your government has no problem finding money for big parties, liquor stores, breweries, gambling and then short-changes our Island students.’ (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the importance of speaking to a psychologist. Yourwellness Magazine explained, ‘Life can be difficult sometimes. Change is a big part of life that can bring in good as well as upsetting moments. For some, having personal life problems can be very stressful, as emotionally it can drain you, but they find it hard to discuss the problem with anyone. Any big changes like a job shift or turning into a parent can cause disturbance in your life and seeking support at such important times will only make your life easy. Keeping your personal issues to yourself may not help you with anything. However, sharing the concern with someone close or a professional helper can certainly benefit.’ (

Yourwellness Magazine advised readers to ask themselves whether personal problems are affecting their overall wellbeing, leading to issues such as a loss of sleep or appetite. Yourwellness Magazine recommended those who do find their wellbeing being affected to speak to someone they trust, or seek advice from a professional expert like a psychologist or a psychiatrist. Yourwellness Magazine pointed out that professional experts can deal with small issues as well as major, life-changing problems.
