I'm in Ontario. The system has been marginal, I guess.
It can take a while to see a psychiatrist, if your case qualifies as needing it. The appointments are often short (for me at least) (15 min or so).
The drugs are expensive, and if you don't have private insurance (or aren't needy enough for government coverage) you end up paying out of pocket for drugs.
I take ritalin, but I would benefit from ritalin CR. Ritalin CR would run me over $250 a month out of pocket. Because of my situation, theres nobody to pick up that tab.
Oh, and the drugs don't really work :) But I guess thats pretty much common to all countries :)
