Workshop Description

Register soon for this low-cost training.

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

The ability to thrive and manage life’s difficulties is greatly influenced by our mental wellbeing from an early age. Children and youth need supports in their lives to help navigate the challenges that come along with mental health, and to connect them with the necessary support and services. This workshop provides a general overview of the common mental illnesses for children and youth, including the signs and symptoms, themes for treatment, and the controversies that surround some of the diagnoses. Participants will learn tips for informal support of children, youth, and their families struggling with mental health concerns.

Please note: This workshop is not a skill-building workshop and does not provide training for clinical therapy – the aim of the workshop is to provide understanding and awareness of mental health concerns in children and youth.
