Improving Primary Health Care by Reducing Stigma - Sept 29

Improving Primary Health Care by Reducing Stigma

In 2010, The Office of Transformative Global Health at CAMH partnered with three Toronto-based Community Health Centres to develop and implement an anti-stigma/anti-discrimination intervention. The goal was to reduce stigma and discrimination among primary health care providers toward people with mental health and substance use issues.

Community Healers Project - Support Circle for Frontline Workers of Colour - Sept 8 - 6 - 8:30pm

Hi Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the summer.  

Our support circle for people of colour in late July was small but powerful - we had some great in-depth discussion, and it was clear hearing from those that attended and many that weren't able to make it, that front-line and community workers of colour need a space to connect and talk. A few people mentioned that they needed a people of colour space to speak safely and would not likely attend if it were not designated people of colour only.
