Building Networks and Research Capacity

Deadline for Submissions: June 12, 2009

The Women's Mental Health Program of the University of Toronto invites you to submit an abstract to our first provincial conference on women's mental health. The theme, "Women's Mental Health in Ontario: Building Networks and Research Capacity," is intended to create a
forum for women's mental health researchers across Ontario to meet one another, share their research and ideas, and forge collaborative relationships. Submissions from all academic disciplines are welcome, as are topics in any area of women's mental health. We invite researchers at all stages of their careers to participate. We especially encourage students and trainees to submit proposals.

The conference will consist of a full day of paper presentations, symposia, panel discussions, poster sessions and a plenary address by Dr. Kimberly Yonkers, Associate Professor at Yale University. Please join us and present your research. Research projects at all stages of development are welcome. Our aim is to share ideas and foster dialogue.

The conference will be held on Saturday, October 17th, 2009 at the University of Toronto.
