This year, the Canadian Collaborative Mental Health Care Conference will again be partnering with the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, our sister organization in the U.S., to present a joint conference. The conference will offer more than 100 breakout sessions representing a diverse blend of topics and clinical, research, administrative, policy, or training issues.  It is our goal to bring innovative and inspiring topics to our audiences.

The conference will include programming in innovative areas of collaborative and integrated healthcare, especially highlighting (though not limited to) the following:

• Socioeconomic, racial, and other inequities in healthcare with paths to move forward

• Actionable steps to bring equitable healthcare to all

• Telehealth sustainability and leveraging the virtual platform to reduce disparity.

More information about the conference is available on our conference page as well as on the CFHA website.  If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Poor Hahn at  

We look forward to a great conference in October! 

Warm regards and stay safe, 

Dr. Matt Burkey and Dr. Maria Patriquin, Conference co-chairs 

Dr. Nadiya Sunderji, Conference Advisor
