Mouvement Santé mentale Québec (MSMQ) is a group of community organizations dedicated to promoting mental health throughout the province. Since 2016, the group has launched an annual mental health promotion campaign in tandem with the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Week. The MSMQ campaign is broad in scope and targets all Québec residents, regardless of age or background. Its aim is to make tools available that promote resilience. The challenge is to foster an understanding of mental health and the factors that contribute to it. The long-term goal is to ensure that mental health is promoted at all times and in all places, given its important role in individual and community capacity building.
The workshop begins with a presentation of the campaign’s logic model, followed by a group reflection, using real-life examples, on the following topics: the strategies needed to get various stakeholders promoting mental health; how far we’ve come in that regard and in the context of COVID; and the challenges faced.
