Keynote: Voices of the service users: The consequence of collaborative practice from the lens of a former mental health client

Mr. Taduran is an information security professional, a speaker, and a former service user of mental health care services. During his college days more than a decade ago, he had experienced several episodes of mental and emotional distress (manic depression) where he had the opportunity to meet and work with different health and social care professionals towards his recovery. As a former service user and now a mental health advocate, Mr. Taduran hopes to share his story framed from a client's perspective about how interprofessional collaborative practice matters especially in this day and age when more and more people are becoming affected by mental illnesses.
