Registration is now open for an Atlantic Canadian event which will bring together individuals from across the region with an interest in child and youth mental health.
Mental health plays an essential role in overall health and well-being, and an investment in programs for children and youth has positive long-term results that last a lifetime. A summer event in Atlantic Canada hopes to increase the spotlight on child and youth mental health by encouraging community leaders of all ages to work collaboratively to support the mental health of children and youth in Atlantic Canada.
The goal of the two-day Symposium: Investing in Child and Youth Mental Health – Mobilizing Atlantic Canadians for a Positive Future is to learn about mental health in Atlantic Canada, build networks and identify strategies for enhancing programs and policies in schools, communities and provinces. The event is designed for everyone who promotes positive mental health, including researchers, policy-makers and advocates, as well as parents, caregivers, and youth.
