COLLABORATIVE MENTAL HEALTH CARE

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The Canadian Collaborative Mental Health Care Conference aims to advance collaborative practices in mental health, primary care, and community settings.  It is a unique conference where all stakeholders involved in collaborative mental health care can gather, learn together, and learn from each other.  We value multiple forms of knowledge and ‘evidence’ including scientific knowledge, pragmatic knowledge of healthcare providers and administrators, traditional knowledge of Indigenous peoples, and experiential knowledge of service users, families and caregivers with lived or living experience of mental health or substance use challenges.  Throughout the conference, we seek to promote dialogue between these different perspectives.

Whether you are a healthcare provider or administrator, researcher, student, policymaker, community-based service provider, or person, family member or caregiver with lived or living experience of mental health and/or substance use challenges, we invite you to submit an abstract and attend the conference to connect with a diverse community who share a common interest in collaborative care and innovations that can improve mental health and well-being.

The Call for Abstracts is now open!  The deadline to submit is February 4th 2022 (11:30 pm EST).

Insofar as the health situation allows it on June 17-18, 2022, we are planning a hybrid conference where the speakers and a certain number of participants will be able to participate in the event in-person at the Quebec City Convention Centre while maintaining a virtual component. The organizing committee reserves the right to convert 100% of the activities to a virtual format depending on the evolution of the epidemiological portrait.
