Strengthening Children's Mental Health
This one-day in-person training, developed in collaboration with Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario, will help anyone running children’s programs be more informed and prepared to support their staff in promoting positive mental health in children. Participants will learn key concepts and factors that affect children’s mental health including the impact of stress and environment on a child’s ability to cope. This training will provide tools and suggested activities to use with staff to help improve their understanding and interactions with children who face challenges in their programs.
At the completion of this training, learners will be able to identify key concepts related to children’s mental health, as well as strategies to help staff promote positive mental health and respond appropriately to children with challenges and/or mental health conditions.
