All Rise:  A Summit on Mental Health in the Professions

On May 22, 2015, the Ontario Bar Association and four partner associations hosted the All Rise summit to discuss ways to promote openness about mental health in professional settings.

The program brought together lawyers, physicians, psychologists, dentists and engineers through partnerships with the Ontario Medical Association, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers, the Ontario Dental Association and the Ontario Psychological Association.

Attendees benefited from panel discussions featuring clinical specialists, industry professionals and workplace experts. They also participated in breakout sessions where they identified challenges to and opportunities for creating more supportive work environments.  A summary of the ideas presented during the day’s discussions is available here.
