We at PSR Canada feel that it's important for us to share pertinent information about national topics that affect our work in Mental Health and Addictions.

This event is hosted by our affiliate organization in Quebec, AQRP. For our French speaking members this may be of interest to you.

Trois verbes d’action forts pour marquer ce 19e Colloque
nous engageant individuellement et collectivement pour influencer le changement.

Le 19e Colloque de l’AQRP et le 11e Congrès d’Intervoice se veulent une occasion privilégiée de favoriser les échanges et l’apprentissage mutuel. Il est temps de collaborer afin d’innover, d’apprendre et de construire ensemble de nouvelles pratiques en santé mentale. Prenons ce temps pour se rassembler, réfléchir, se soutenir et surtout pour rendre plus ouvertes, plus humaines et plus inclusives notre société et ses communautés dans un contexte social où la discrimination et l’exclusion sont encore présentes.

Ces événements se tiendront les 11, 12 et 13 novembre 2019, à l’Hôtel Bonaventure, situé au centre-ville de Montréal, sous le thème OSER – PARTICIPER – TRANSFORMER : s’approprier le changement.


As Recovery Practitioners, we want to be continually learning about how to use our practices and the supportive evidence. In Domain C.8 there is reference to the kind of competency we must have to work in our community. Below is a summary and a link to work that is being done Australia.

”The well-being and social emotional development of infants, young children and their caregivers is to the future social fabric of society. To be effective the system of services supporting infants and young children in their families and communities must be integrated across levels of service delivery as well as across sectors. It must also be dynamic and responsive to the changing individual, family, community and environmental contexts. This project known as Better Together reports on research conducted on the System of Care for Perinatal Infant Mental Health (PIMH) in the Cities of Joondalup and Wanneroo in Western Australia and captures initial layers of information about this system.” http://www.iimhl.com/files/docs/20190518.pdf
