Thank you to everyone who joined us on October 10 2019 for World Mental Health Day.
Stay tuned for upcoming events.
What if we can change mental health treatment in Canada - one employee, and one employer at a time?
Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 12 pm – 6 pm at TELUS Garden
Please join esteemed psychiatrist Dr. Diane McIntosh for a captivating afternoon sharing how we can transform mental health in our workplace and beyond. Canadians are thinking and talking about mental illness more often, and more thoughtfully. We understand the importance of mental health treatment—and the detriment of stigma—as never before. But we still face a lack of adequate resources for individuals suffering from psychiatric illness. Discover what we can do to support mental wellness in our workplaces through discussions with thought leaders in psychiatry, social change and business. This program is interactive and meant as an opportunity to share ideas and build momentum. The event will culminate with a cocktail reception for guests to recognize World Mental Health Day. Dr. Diane McIntosh will also be launching her anticipated new book, This is Depression.
Panel discussions include:
This is Depression: What You Didn’t Know You Didn’t Know
The Personal & Financial Cost of Mental Illness
New Horizons in Clinical Innovation
Cannabis, Gaming, Screens and the Adolescent Brain
Change Starts Here: How to Build Long-Term Social Change
