Youth Mental Health Collective at ISPS - Helsinki, Finland

Aarati Taksal, Salomé Xavier, Tovah Cowan, Beatrice Todesco and Srividya Iyer attended the International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis-  2024 June 5th-8th  in sunny Helsinki. Salomé’s talk, entitled “Exploring life narratives and socio-environmental contexts of individuals with psychosis with different ethnic backgrounds” prompted fantastic discussion. Aarati presented two posters (“Indian and Canadian stakeholders’ perception of government’s role in supporting people with mental health problems.” and “Life experiences of youth experiencing early psychosis in Chennai, India and Montreal, Canada.”)  and Tovah presented one (“Recovery over Time among Individuals Receiving Treatment for First-Episode Psychosis in Chennai, India and Montreal, Canada”) based on data from India and Canada. Beatrice presented “Integrating Peer Support within Quebec's Early Intervention Services for psychosis: Proposal for a qualitative evaluation.” The team found the conference invigorating and exciting and loved getting to visit the happiest country in the world.
