MHCC breaks world record at Stigma Conference

At the largest conference of its kind ever held in the world, more than 670 people from 29 countries gathered in Ottawa in June to confront the stigma related to mental health problems and illnesses.  Researchers, mental health professionals, policy makers and people with lived experience shared knowledge, best practices and personal stories at the international event. Co-hosted by the MHCC on June 4-6, hundreds of presentations and perspectives were shared in an effort to eliminate stigma.
