Anti-Stigma/Anti-Discrimination Initiative : Consensus meeting report.

2008 Sep.
Mental Health Commission of Canada.

The consensus meeting was opened by Michael Howlett, President and CEO of the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), who welcomed all of the participants, thanked them for coming and provided an overview of the primary purpose of the meeting—i.e. the joint development of a consensus vision, guiding principles and goals for the MHCC national Anti-stigma, / Anti-discrimination Initiative. While noting that full implementation of the initiative will take some time, the meeting represents a critical first step in the development of an effective and collaborative anti-stigma / anti-discrimination strategy for Canada. Michael emphasized the importance of working in partnership as this will enable the Commission and the mental health community to move forward together in achieving the identified goals.
