Two University of Guelph-Humber professors are running a symposium on Indigenous mental health for most of Wednesday.

The Global Indigenous Mental Health Symposium is bringing together researchers from around the world with interest in the topic, according to the event description.

A panel of 20 representatives from varied nations will tackle “questions related to culture, challenge and resilience, to share how Indigenous communities around the world support the mental health of their members.”

Professor Dr. Masood Zangeneh and Psychology Program head Dr. David Danto will moderate the panel and will have a book they have co-written, Indigenous Mental Health: A Global Perspective, on display.

Of the panel, 15 have doctorates.

Interested student needed to RSVP by Mar. 14 to be able to attend the event, at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto.
