Actions and Detail Panel
Honouring the Past & Embracing the Future: Mental Health & Indigenous Youth
Wed, 3 May 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM MDT
This symposium convenes Indigenous professionals, mental health practitioners, social workers, researchers and more as they share their experiences, insights and recommendations on mental health among indigenous youth. Symposium highlights include First Nations high school students speaking about their involvement in the successful HEADSTRONG program, and an Indigenous panel of experts moderated by Dr. David Swann, MLA, engaged in a forward-looking dialogue on how to nurture the mental wellbeing of indigenous youth so they thrive into the future.
Participants will benefit through acquiring knowledge on strategies, practical tools, resources, approaches and mind-sets that they can adopt in their roles working with indigenous youth.
Join The Mathison Centre at the University of Calgary and The Mental Health Commission of Canada as we spearhead the discussion on indigenizing mental health of youth.
