2012 CCSMH/CAGP Conference

The Canadian Academy of Geriatric Psychiatry and Canadian Coalition for Seniors’ Mental Health Joint Conference brings together participants from across Canada and provides an opportunity to network with colleagues and exchange ideas while gaining up-to-date knowledge on managing key issues in seniors’ mental health. There were just over 200 participants at the 2008 joint conference in Vancouver and we look forward to hosting the next meeting on September 21-22, 2012 in Banff, AB, themed “Celebrating the Past, Present & Future of Seniors’Mental Health.” We are in the midst of developing a lively program that combines academic and practical clinical presentations that would cater to a mutli-disciplinary audience.
