Two Days of Powerful Talks
April 25, 26
Time: TBD

The International Conference on Mental Health and Addictions invites you to delve into new ways of navigating a post-COVID-19 world, recognizing that marginalized communities, especially Black, Indigenous, and Asian groups, continue to face unique mental health and addiction challenges. Beyond merely returning to pre-pandemic norms, this conference emphasizes learning from the lessons of COVID-19 and advocates for an ethical and holistic approach to future pandemics. Addressing historical trauma and considering diverse socio-cultural and economic aspects, the conference aims to reshape scientific measures for pandemic control. By fostering critical and ethical discussions, the event envisions an intersectional imagination of our world, valuing subjugated ways of life in the face of ongoing global health challenges.
