The Mental Health Commission of Canada is pleased to announce the start of the second phase of the mental health strategy development plan. Beginning in March 2010, the Commission will host a series of roundtable meetings. These roundtables will examine specific topics related to achieving the vision and goals set out in "Toward Recovery and Wellbeing: A Framework for a Mental Health Strategy for Canada." Working together, we will define practical solutions and develop action plans to achieve our vision.
In this phase, we want to continue building on the extensive knowledge and experience of diverse stakeholders in Canada including those living with mental health problems and illnesses, their families, service providers, researchers, policy-makers, and concerned individuals. We need your input to create a strategy that works.
You can participate using new on-line tools to:
- Indicate your interest in participating in a roundtable session
- Respond to our Request for Proposals for the development of background papers
- Access a copy of "Toward Recovery and Wellbeing: A Framework for a Mental Health Strategy for Canada"
