About the Keynote Speaker:

 

Dr. Ian Dawe is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. He is the Program Chief and Medical Director of Mental Health at Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga, ON. Working in collaboration with Trillium’s senior leadership team, its service users and their families, as well as its medical and allied health professionals, he is focused on co-creating a new kind of mental health care – one that prioritizes personalization, coordination and enablement.

He was recently appointed as Chair of the Ontario Hospital Association’s Suicide Prevention Standards Task Force, a diverse panel of researchers, academics, clinicians and lived experience experts with a mandate from the Minister of Health and Long Term Care to focus on establishing best practice, evidence-based standards to guide the care for at-risk people in all of Ontario’s 151 hospitals.
He has acted as principle or co-investigator in clinical trials and has authored numerous articles and reports on mental health care. He is a frequent invited lecturer with the Bell Let’s Talk campaign on topics including suicide prevention, mindfulness and workplace mental health and has presented his findings at a wide variety of provincial, national and international seminars, conferences and symposia.
Dr. Dawe completed medical school at Memorial University of Newfoundland and a residency in psychiatry, two years of fellowship training (Suicide Studies, Emergency Psychiatry, and Mental Health Systems Research), and a Masters degree in Health Administration, all at the University of Toronto. His clinical and research areas of interest include recovery, tele-mental health and virtual care services, suicide and suicidal behaviours, quality and patient safety, health advocacy, and the design and evaluation of mental health delivery systems.
