Webinar: Toward Quality Mental Health Care – Dismantling Structural Stigma

December 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Mental Health Commission of Canada

Anyone with a need should have access to quality mental health care — no matter where they live or what circumstances they’re in. But how can health organizations prevent stigmatizing practices? And how can they dismantle structural stigma within their organizations?

Join the Mental Health Commission of Canada, HealthCareCAN, and health leaders for an insightful webinar on quality mental health care, with a focus on structural stigma. This session will delve into the concept of structural stigma as expert panel members offer practical strategies for effectively addressing this key aspect of the framework.
