  • The Mental Health for All (MH4A) CMHA National Conference

    October 22-24, 2018

    The Mental Health for All (MH4A) Conference plays a unique role in uniting the people and ideas that exemplify mental health in Canada. Now in its third year, the MH4A Conference is an important place of convergence, where service providers, front-line workers, researchers, funders, policy makers and people with lived experience of mental health problems and illnesses come together to set the agenda.

    The theme of this year’s conference is “Ahead by a century: the shape of things to come”. Together we will envision the future of mental health in Canada, moving “upstream” to ensure that we are promoting mental health, and preventing mental illness before it can take hold.
