Event description

Description

As a professional concerned with the mental health and well-being of children, youth and their families we invite you to join us on August 24, 2017 for a light lunch and learn about how you can bring the award-winning Stop Now And Plan (SNAP®) program to your community. We welcome those in senior leadership roles who interested and invested in children’s mental health, welfare, family success or education at the local, government, or donor support level.

One in five children in Canada struggles with a mental health disorder, and approximately 80% of these children are not able to access the help they need. The most common diagnosis among these children is Disruptive Behaviour Problems including aggression, bullying, rule-breaking, Conduct Disorder and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. These serious behavioural problems undermine a child’s ability to make reasoned, informed decisions. If left untreated, these children are at serious risk of continuing down a negative path towards school drop-out and anti-social behaviour.

Everything can change with SNAP.

Let us show you how.
