Like a fingerprint, each neighbourhood has its own unique character — reflecting specific social structures, values systems, aesthetic preferences, and lifestyles. It is for this reason that researchers have been studying links between mental health and neighbourhoods since the 1950s.

This coming Monday, May 28th, the Centre for Research on Inner City Health is hosting a community conference to share ideas and information on how Toronto neighbourhoods can be used to promote mental health. Part of the “Let’s Get Talking” discussion series, attendees are being encouraged to work together and brainstorm strategies to make our neighbourhoods healthier for everybody.
