The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) invites you to the launch of our latest research project The Case for Diversity: Building the Case to Improve Mental Health Services for Immigrant, Refugee, Ethno-cultural and Racialized Populations.
The Case for Diversity (CFD) Report is the result of a multi-year research project collaboration between MHCC and researchers from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and the Wellesley Institute.
Join us to hear from the Honorable Celina Ceasar-Chavannes, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, and for a lively and engaging panel discussion with leading experts in mental health equity, community leaders and government representatives.
Diversity is a hallmark of contemporary Canadian society, and MHCC has been a leader in recognizing the need for better services to meet the needs of everyone living in Canada.
Canada has a particular interest in initiatives that can improve the health of IRER populations because its prosperity, growth and strength are tied to its diversity and the success of its newcomer populations.
The CFD Project takes a health equity approach, using up-to-date literature reviews and cost-benefit analyses in addition to providing a library of Canadian practices of interest in mental health. The report offers state-of-the-art evidence to show why there is an urgent need to develop more appropriate services for IRER populations and what can be done to improve existing services.
There is no charge to attend but seating is limited and advance registration is required.
