2023 Canadian Collaborative Mental Health Care Conference
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 partners involved in 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.
This year our main conference theme is “Integration across the mental health care continuum from research to practice”. Our theme emphasizes the importance of building and strengthening integrated systems of care for people of all ages and across the diverse settings in which mental health and substance use services are delivered. The theme also highlights the need to bridge critical gaps between knowledge and practice and embed research within our systems of care in order to accelerate learning and improvement.
Whether you are a healthcare provider or administrator, researcher, student, Indigenous person, 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 and growing community that strives to remain at the cutting edge of practices and innovations that improve mental health and well-being in Canada and abroad.
