A message from the organizers of the 2020 Collaborative Mental Health Care Conference

In light of the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19, we are cancelling the 2020 Canadian Collaborative Mental Health Care conference, which had been scheduled for June 5th and 6th in Halifax.

Our plan is to postpone the conference for a year, re-scheduling it for late spring 2021, also in Halifax. We will let you know about new dates as soon as they are confirmed, and will be directly contacting everyone who had an abstract accepted over the coming weeks.

If you have already registered for the conference, we will be contacting you, and you will receive a full refund.

If you have any questions, please contact Jane Harris at  

Thank you for your continuing support of the conference. We look forward to seeing you next year in Halifax!

Maria Patriquin and Nadiya Sunderji

Thank you to all the presenters and attendees at the 2019 conference held on May 10th and 11th at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel!  More information is available here.
