Event description

Description

Stollery Spotlight on children’s mental health

We believe that mental health should be treated and cared for just like physical health, as it plays an equal role in the overall health of individuals. Join us for an evening of learning and connecting around children's mental health, and see the impact we make together at the Stollery Children’s Hospital for families from backyards across Alberta.


Program:

5:30 p.m. – Reception with light refreshments

6 p.m. – Program with speaker presentations

7 p.m. – Closing reception with light refreshments


The event is hosted by Carrie Doll, chair of the Stollery Women’s Network, and Austin Moore, chair of the Stollery Youth Network.

Our speakers include:

Mark Snaterse, executive director, addictions and mental health, Alberta Health Services

Mark provides administrative leadership over service-delivery and planning for specialized inpatient and community-based addiction and mental health services for children, youth, adults and seniors. His clinical background is in psychiatric pharmacy practice with specialized focus on acute adult mental health, forensic psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry. Mark is also an adjunct clinical professor with the faculty of pharmacy at the University of Alberta and has teaching experience in the faculties of pharmacy, medicine, nursing and rehabilitation.

Ashley Radomski, PhD candidate in the department of pediatrics, University of Alberta, and member of Women and Children’s Health Research Institute

Under the supervision of Dr. Amanda Newton, and as part of a national interdisciplinary team, Ashley’s work involves a pan-Canadian research study evaluating the Breathe program: an online, eHealth cognitive behavioural therapy program for adolescents with anxiety. She is also leading a project to learn how eHealth anxiety programs for children and adolescents work and what intervention features are important to these users. Her doctoral research has been supported in part by the Women and Children’s Health Research Institute, through funding from the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.
