Your provincial executive met in Vancouver on May 28th to begin planning the annual BCSCA Conference, being held at the Coast Hotel, Stanley Park on Denman Street Oct. 20/21, 2011. As mentioned above, we have our keynote speaker lined up, Dr. Bill McKeown, founder of the Early Psychosis Intervention Initiative, and the theme will be Youth Mental Health. He is a psychiatrist with a difference: he doesn't wait for his patients to come to him, he goes to them on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. If you book your hotel room before September 30, you will receive the conference rate of $125 per night. Earlybird registrations are eligible to be entered into a draw!
