Putting Care into Mental Health Care
November 2, 2018

The contemporary environment of mental healthcare is replete with medical, legal, and social complexities affecting both patients and practitioners. The Centre for Clinical Ethics’ 2018 annual conference will take a close look at these complexities and the relationships between them. Our sessions will confront real-world issues in mental health and wellness relevant to patients, families and healthcare providers, including trauma, patients’ rights under the law, stigma and discrimination, psychiatric care in community settings, and mindfulness.
