Some CRCF members decided to join together to create a Huddle - a gathering of people who wish to define next steps, and envision how to transform the energy shown at the Women’s Marches into local and national action. During monthly meetings held on the first Thursday of the month from 2:00 to 3:00 pm at the Centre for Research on Children and Families, Huddlers identify social issues they are concerned about and develop strategies to act on. Members can also connect by videoconferencing or teleconferencing.


Despite the increasing emphasis on patient-centred care, and the significant potential for both positive and negative consequences associated with Complementary Therapies, very little is known about the treatment preferences among people living with mental health symptoms in Canada. Variation of preferences and use of mental health care exists across and within cultures, with some cultural groups being less accepting of treatments offered by health care professionals, often with concerns related to medication.
