Speaker Series May 8th: Why Together is Better for Child and Youth Mental Health

Apr 12, 2017

Join us on Monday May 8, during Mental Health Week, for this important community conversation.

In 2012, the Province of Ontario launched “Moving on Mental Health” which challenged communities to work and plan together to build a better system for Child and Youth Mental Health.

How has our community responded? What has been done, and what still remains to be done?

Pathways for Children and Youth serves as the facilitative lead for this endeavor in our community.  We have partnered with them to develop this program and an impressive panel of speakers: 

Michelle Hurtubise, Executive Director at Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health will share the Centre’s approach to promoting a culture of continuous learning and innovation, helping communities strengthen their services.

Nicki Collins, Executive Director for Pathways for Children and Youth  will talk about why mental health deserves our attention and describe how our community is planning together to improve our child and youth mental health system, tackling issues like improving access into services, engaging youth and families, and building a map to help guide service planning.

Dr. Sarosh Khalid-Khan, Division Chair of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services at Hotel Dieu Hospital will share the innovative work conducted to coordinate referrals for child and youth mental health services from family physicians, and how this coordination has helped to increase access to the “right service at the right time” for KFLA children and youth.
