Regional meetings were held across the province of Nova Scotia during September 2011.  Over 100+ participants attended to provide feedback and advise us on next steps.  As requested a PDF of the presentation is available below.  This presentation included an overview on the current research looking at stigma, discrimination and social inclusion as well as the PRELIMINARY results for the career practitioner and service users surveys.

We will continue to seek input and update the findings.  Your support in engaging people to participate would be greatly appreciated.
