You are invited to submit abstracts for the Canadian Mental Health Association’s third annual Mental Health for All Conference, October 22-24, 2018 in Montreal. This year’s theme is Ahead by a century: the shape of things to come.
Looking ahead means looking upstream: upstream to mental health promotion, to preventing mental illness. Our current system is based on responding to crisis, and to meeting the acute needs of people with severe mental illness. We know there is so much more that can be done, and done earlier. We have learned that access to high quality services that are timely, person-centered, and culturally responsive are key.
You will see in our Call for Abstracts that we encourage innovation and creativity throughout the conference, including in the very formats of your presentations. So, let’s share, create and innovate. Together, let’s catapult mental health into the next century.
