Mental Health Diary

April 9 and 10, 2014, Montréal Science Centre, 2 rue de la Commune Ouest, Montréal, Quebec.

The RASS is a unique forum offering managers, researchers and professionals in healthcare and social services the opportunity to come together to share their perspectives and create a fertile context for reflection.

This year, the theme will be learning and innovating organizations − developing a culture and practices.

Lectures, case study presentations and program workshops aim to support the development of a culture of innovation in social services and increase organizations’ ability to move from innovation to integration in their practices.

September 24−26, 2014, Imperial College, London, UK.

Implementing Mental Wellbeing in All Policies

Compelling evidence highlights the effectiveness of a variety of interventions to promote mental wellbeing. Over the past two decades much progress has been made in the development of scientific knowledge concerning the determinants of mental wellbeing, as well as in a range of effective public mental health interventions. However, much more needs to be done if we are to continue to improve mental wellbeing. We need positive approaches by governments and non-governmental organizations, in addition to effective, proven policies and programs.
