Launch of the Canadian Network for Research on Schizophrenia and Psychoses
On Friday, January 24, 2020, the first meeting of the Canadian Network for Research on Schizophrenia and Psychoses was held at the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal. This event was attended by over 50 professionals from the health network and academia as well as people living with schizophrenia or psychosis and their loved ones.This new network was initiated by researcher and psychologist Tania Lecomte and a number of her colleagues from institutions in Quebec and Canada. The network’s goal is to bring together stakeholders from the schizophrenia and psychosis community to develop ongoing partnerships and advance science. At the event, the network members joined subgroups and plenary sessions to discuss and reflect on specific themes, which allowed them to define research priorities and find solutions to facilitate the funding and implementation of the chosen initiatives. The group closed the meeting with a discussion of the network’s next steps.
