Danielle Impey (Mental Health Commission of Canada) and Debra Coffey (Registered Professional Counsellor) explore the emerging field of e-mental health, which uses the Internet and other technologies to provide care faster and from rural and remote locations. Impey explains the phenomenon and talks about the infrastructure, funding, training, and quality control needed. Coffey underscores the benefits and potential pitfalls of e-mental health for both clients and practitioners.
Drs. Trevor Hancock and Warren Bell share invaluable insights about the inefficiencies of our existing “downstream” mental health care system, and the opportunities provided by an “upstream” approach that better serves individuals, families, workplaces, and communities through prevention and health promotion. Dr. Hancock is a public health scholar and Dr. Bell, a GP and activist for more than 40 years.
