  • Innovative approaches to capacity building across the spectrum of care including family-centered approaches, shared care and collaborative practice models, crisis response, community follow-up and after care
  • Spotlighting new and promising practices and strength-based approaches in workplaces, institutions and/or community settings
  • Moving through crisis response and risk reduction helping to build lives worth living
  • Impacts of the CASP Blueprint, various provincial strategies and the work of The Mental Health Commission of Canada on suicide prevention
