The conference logo is an original graphic design donated by Terri Vernon, faculty member, Nova Scotia Community College, Annapolis Valley Campus, Middleton.

"The theme of this year's conference logo is clouds. When desiging the logo, I was reflecting on the way that different people see different images in clouds and how this is a matter of individual perspective. I made the brain appear "cloud-like" to convey the idea that there are many perspectives on brain science and mental health, and that these are constantly changing." ~ Terri Vernon
