Mental health awareness workshop
Building on the success of the Working Together for Kids’ Mental Health program, the Centre launched a mental health awareness initiative in 2011 designed to build common ground that will support diverse professionals, families, children, youth and decision-makers in their work.
The Centre developed a training program in mental health awareness for educators, administrators, mental health service providers and health-care professionals. The workshop included:
- Basic knowledge and skills required to understand common child and youth mental health issues.
- A common understanding and language for participants.
- A snapshot of local and provincial resources and how to use them.
