Mental health is an essential resource for life. Children and youth thrive in environments that support mental health, and their wellbeing, in turn, impacts the overall health and prosperity of our communities. Mounting global research shows the need for upstream investment in programs that support children and families, and address contributing factors, such as living conditions and experiences during early childhood, which are key factors for mental health. A whole-of-society approach is required – collaboration between government departments (such as health, education and justice), philanthropic organizations, civil society and the business world.

Following our successful ASI 2018 Forum on developing a whole society approach to promoting child and youth mental health, we are expanding on this theme by focusing on supportive environments – social and physical – that can influence mental health and well-being. Social environments include families, communities, schools and the virtual environment of social media, while physical environments include both built and natural. The importance of cultural connection will be considered throughout. The 2019 program will include updates on the Call to Action, Indigenous ways of knowing, and connections to the Sustainable Development Goals.

We invite you to become involved and support this collaborative work through our 2019 program, which will build on the momentum of ASI programming 2015-2018 that has advanced child and youth mental health promotion in Atlantic Canada.

The Atlantic Summer Institute (ASI) will be a bilingual event, held at the University of Prince Edward Island from August 19-21, 2019. A Youth Leadership Program and Children’s Program will also be offered.
