There is no health without mental health and all public health practitioners should keep this in mind in day-to-day practice. This workshop conducted by the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) facilitated a discussion on the needs identified by public health practitioners to develop and implement a population mental health agenda. Needs have been identified through an exploratory questionnaire developed and implemented? in collaboration with the NCCPH.

Pascale Mantoura from the NCCHPP introduced the survey findings. She was joined by Dr. Chris Mackie (Middlesex-London Health Unit), Heather Manson (Public Health Ontario), Jessica Patterson (Toronto Public Health) and Tamar Meyer (CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre), who offered their own perspective on the findings.

Workshop participants were encouraged to reflect on the needs presented in their own public health practice.

This workshop took place in Toronto on March 25, at the Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC).
