About this Event

Our conference this year is going online. We have scheduled monthly, virtual events / presentations from November 2020 to May 2021. The theme of our virtual conference is "Mental Health Matters". Registration for each session is a separate event in Eventbrite.

Importance of Parent Self-Care - Ontario Caregiver Organization (9:00 - 10:00)

The Ontario Caregiver Organization (OCO) exists to support Ontario’s 3.3 million caregivers; ordinary people who provide physical and emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour. OCO supports caregivers by being their one point of access to information, so they have what they need to be successful in their role. Join us to learn the importance of self-care from the experts.

Benefits of Peer Support Groups - Lisa Palmer (10:00 - 10:45)

Peer support programs work by offering people support, encouragement, and a sense of community. Peer support considers the wellness of the whole person and focuses on health and productivity rather than challenges and disability, in order to assist people in finding their own path to success. Join Lisa Palmer, Social Worker, Dalglish Family Hearts and Mind Clinic to learn more about how peer support could be a good fit for you.

Mental Health & 22q Panel (11:00 - 11:55)

This panel will include a variety of perspectives, including parents as well as teens/young adults with 22q. The focus will be on successful strategies these individuals use to support positive mental health and wellbeing. Bring your questions and ideas!

Supported by the SickKids 22q Deletion Syndrome Clinic, this parent-organized event is a forum to connect, share, and learn from experts and other parents whose lives have been touched by 22q11DS.

This series has been partially funded through SickKids Foundation.
