Seniors’ Mental Health
We are thrilled to announce that the 2022 ASM will be held in Montreal, Quebec from October 14-15. Please join us for an exciting return to in-person learning, sharing and networking with colleagues from across the country!
We encourage submissions that relate to the theme of the conference, particularly those that highlight new or emerging topics, research, or programming. Topics that are particularly relevant would be those related to ethical, legal and moral responsibilities (e.g., decision making capacity, MAID, ageism, or topics that place an emphasis on health equity, diversity and social justice. Further, we encourage submissions with a focus on diverse gender and sexual identities, Indigenous health, cultural safety, anti-racism, disability, poverty, and other underrepresented topics related to vulnerabilities/inequities in older adult mental health care. Multidisciplinary contributions and content that are geared towards trainees are welcome as always!
The CAGP and CCSMH are monitoring COVID-19 related considerations closely to ensure that an in-person meeting will continue to be feasible and to ensure that COVID-19 related requirements are met. Proper protocols for hosting meetings and travel during COVID-19 will be followed throughout our planning process and updates will be provided over the coming months as additional information becomes available closer to the meeting date.
We invite you to participate and welcome abstract submissions from across the country and from all disciplines. We hope you will join us at the preeminent meeting for Seniors’ Mental Health in Canada.We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!

Abstract Submission Guidelines
Information about Abstract Submissions
The maximum word count is 250 words.
Abstract Category Definitions
The abstract categories are defined as follows:
Clinical Case Presentation: This presentation is intended for informative clinical cases. There should be maximal audience participation, interaction and discussion. The clinical case must be supported by literature and evidence around the teaching and learning points.
Oral Presentation: An oral presentation is approximately 15 minutes in length (the exact time will be confirmed, but this presentation typically consists of an 11-minute talk followed by a 4-minute question and answer period).
Poster Presentation: There will be dedicated poster sessions scheduled throughout the meeting, at which presenters will have the opportunity to interact with delegates. There will also be an award for Top Poster Presenter and our very popular Track Poster Session for trainees, which is a facilitated poster session allowing the presenter the opportunity to receive constructive feedback.
Symposium: A symposium is a presentation that consists of two or three separate talks around a similar theme and is 60 minutes in duration. To submit your symposium, fill in the required fields including overall session abstract and an abstract of no more than 250 words for each individual talk within the symposium.
Workshop: A workshop is 60 minutes in length and must be highly interactive, lively and informative. Workshops are particularly suited to sessions encouraging skills development or in which role play or other dynamic teaching approaches are desired.
For a sample of an abstract, please take a look at the Book of Abstracts from 2021.
