Synopsis

Drawing on mindyourmind’s decade-plus of youth engagement and anti-stigma expertise, this webinar describes the landscape of youth mental health in Canada as found on the ground and in the literature, including current barriers to access for youth experiencing mental health challenges. Working in collaboration with youth and professionals who serve them, mindyourmind creates resources that have a proven track record of improving early-identification and help-seeking behavior. Participants in this webinar will learn about free, evidence-based resources to be used as adjuncts to in-service treatment or interactions with youth. mindyourmind professionals from a range of clinical and youth-engagement disciplines employ an interactive approach to this webinar, prioritizing audience needs, and equipping them with evidence-based resources to support their practice.
