Inaugural conference on Quebec Inuit mental health held at McGill

APTN National News
Over 125 experts on mental health convened at McGill University for the Quebec Inuit Mental Health Retreat, a conference focused on how to provide mental health care to the people of Quebec’s North.

It’s the first of its kind, and both organizers and participators hope that it becomes an annual event.

APTN National News reporter Danielle Rochette was at the conference, and spoke with both experts and members of Quebec’s Inuit community about the landmark event.
