The first day will give participants the opportunity to learn about the importance of healthy brain development and its relationship to lifelong health outcomes, with a focus on mental health and addiction. Presentations, group discussion, hands on activities, and real-life examples will be used to give participants a grounding in the science of early brain development and how this knowledge can be used in policy and practice to make a difference for children and families. This day is facilitated by Dr. Nicole Sherren, the Scientific Director and Senior Program Officer with the Palix Foundation and Carlene Donnelly who is the Executive Director of CUPS Health and Education Centre’s, a not for profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and families overcome poverty.
