Expert Advisory Committee Organizations:
The strength of this collaborative project emanates from its expandable scope and multi sector engagement. To date, we have presented to at least 20 different groups including, the Canadian Nurses Association, the Canadian Medical Association, the Network Environments for Indigenous Research, and Families Supporting Adults with Mental Illness in Alberta (FAMI), among others. Following these presentations, in almost all circumstances, individual members of each organization have asked to volunteer time to support this project as members of the Expert Advisory Committee.
