Friday, January 24, 2020 was the first meeting of the Canadian Network for Research on Schizophrenia and Psychoses, at the Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal.
This event brought together more than fifty people from the health network, academia, but also people living with schizophrenia or psychosis, as well as their relatives.
This new network was initiated by researcher and psychologist Tania Lecomte (director of LESPOIR) and several other collaborators from establishments in Quebec and Canada. It aims to bring together stakeholders from the world of schizophrenia and psychosis, to develop sustained collaborations and to advance science.
Those interested in being part of this network can contact the CR-IUSMM at the following address:

The app, called ChillTime, is not intended to replace a visit to a professional, but rather to offer an additional tool to people living with a mental health disorder.
