Massey Dialogue: Mental Health and Psychosis

October 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Please join us in commemorating World Mental Health Day this week by tuning into this week’s Massey Dialogue. It’s what you can’t see: Mental Health and Psychosis.

We welcome Dr. Elyn Saks to reflect on the broader difficulties of living with a mental illness and Dr. Andrea Levinson to reflect on the changing landscape of Canadian mental healthcare. Together, in a conversation mediated by Junior Fellow Keshna Sood, our guests will discuss our mental healthcare system in a global context and identify the elements of a future,  evolved mental healthcare system that addresses our current pitfalls. 

We hope the discussion will educate you about mental health, inspire you to be compassionate, and empower you to help fill gaps in the post-pandemic world of reform.
