From September 18 to the 20, the Canadian Mental Health Association will be hosting the second annual Mental Health for All Conference at the Hilton Toronto.
Brought to you in partnership with the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) and the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA), this unique forum in the mental health arena brings together hundreds of leaders and thinkers, all working toward one goal: mental health for all.
This year, the conference is built on the theme: “it takes a nation.” The chronic underfunding of mental health is a Canadian reality and Canadians have been suffering for it. It will take a whole of government, whole of Canada approach to mental health to make it right. We need to think beyond the doctor’s office: good mental health demands good health care, but it requires more than that. It also involves mental health services delivered in the community. It means promoting mental health in workplaces and in schools across this diverse country. It requires adequate housing, employment and social services. As a result, the conference streams are aligned with this continuum.
Featuring compelling keynote speakers, panels and workshops, the Mental Health for All conference is an important gathering place for mental health decision-makers, funders, researchers, practitioners, front-line workers and people with lived experience. Working in concert with each other for three days, this diverse group of delegates, speakers and presenters has the collective wisdom to create a comprehensive plan that will transform the mental health of Canadians.
