People with lived experience can be invaluable allies in the knowledge translation and dissemination phases because they have experienced depression.
The objective of this education is to prepare lived experience participants with the knowledge to actively participate in a research team and communicate effectively with depression researchers and other mental health professionals, and can have a major impact on the activities of CDRIN.
Under the project management of the Mood Disorders Society of Canada, this education curriculum was developed by Barbara Everett, Ph.D. This three-day in person training session has eight modules and has been delivered in-person four times across Canada. Evaluations have been very positive.
In order to provide the training to a wider audience, we have now digitized the program modules and provide the training in an exciting online format, easy to access, and very engaging and enjoyable to participate in and learn from. Allowing you to benefit from the training regardless of your location.
