Discusses the Canadian Women's Health Network's national workshop on women, gender and mental health held in Ottawa in October 2007. The workshop brought together researchers, communitty-based services providers and educators, non-governmental organizations and policy makers interested and active in gender-based and women's mental health issues to explore the mandate of the newly formed Mental Health Commission of Canada, and to establish strategies for ensuring women are not left out of the picture.
