Meeting organisation

RQSHA also promotes networking by organising and participating in scientific meetings and events.  The network recently organized the 2013 IASR World Congress on Suicide, which was held in Montreal, June 10-13, 2013.  Abstracts of the presentations are available on this page: IASR 2013 Meeting


Presentations and Teaching

Members of the RQSHA contribute to the training of the next generation of researchers by their presentations and teaching.  McGill University made a number of Cultural Psychiatry classes given by professor Laurence Kirmayer.  These and many other presentations by our researchers are available on the RQSHA Youtube channel

and on the McGill Trancultural Psychiatry channel:

Research Day - General Information & Archives

We make an effort to unite the members of our research network annually, to allow them to discuss their work, exchange their ideas, and create new collaborations. Through these activities, we help to create a close-knit and multidisciplinary  community among Quebec’s researchers in suicide and mood disorders.

The 2016 Research Day took place on November 22.
