 Notes:
Expanding access to publicly funded psychological interventions can improve mental health outcomes, quality of life, and offset costs in other areas. As jurisdictions consider ways to expand access, issues of equity must be foundational to service models, so that access in Canada can finally be based on need rather than on income. One in five people living in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness each year. Yet there is no universal insurance coverage for counselling, psychotherapies, and psychological services in Canada. Join Mary Bartram, doctoral candidate at Carleton University, as she presents the findings from her research on income-based inequities in access to psychotherapy in Canada, and lessons learned from the broader equity impacts of reforms in Australia and the UK. This webinar is the third in a 5-part webinar series, running from September 2017 to February 2018, exploring policy considerations for expanding access to counselling, psychotherapies and psychological services.

SamNickels@chhd.org (540-476-4180)
 Notes:
Join Sam Nickels for a fascinating learning tour of El Salvador. This is a “professionals” tour – not for students. We will cover a number of topics: human, legal and women’s rights, access to mental health care, immigration, social services, and the intersection of the educational and prison systems with these topics. We will meet with experts and grassroots advocates across these areas of interest, tour the national psychiatric hospital, and meet with women’s advocacy leaders, education and government officials. We will take time to enjoy El Salvador’s bounty—tourist attractions and eat pupusas off a fire-baked comal. Please spread the word on social media, your websites, and among friends who may be interested in going with you! Our limit is 15 persons. Dates and cost: The 6-day trip (1.5 days travel and 4.5 days intensive learning, March 5-10, 2018) is estimated at $1500, not including airfare (a few discounts are available for extenuating circumstances). Airfare from the U.S. usually runs between $450 - $700. A part of each payment goes to support mental health programs in Central America. This program is being organized by the Center for Health and Human Development and its program Mental Health International (www.chhd.org).
