The two-day conference begins today and brings together health care professionals and clients from across northeastern Ontario to share best practices. Participants will also learn about the various resources available in the community for people with mental health care needs.
“This is an opportunity for people to develop new skills, learn about the range of community resources available, and network with a variety of professionals across various disciplines,” said Pamela Haight, Interim Education Director at HSN’s Sudbury Mental Health and Addictions Centre. “This conference is also designed to allow health care professionals to hear directly from clients, because we need to hear their perspectives and understand their various journeys to wellness.”
Approximately 330 mental health care professionals and clients from across northeastern Ontario are taking part. Clinical staff with HSN will lead most of the various workshops.
