Caring for youth in our community can bring up many questions surrounding mental health, especially as we ease back into social events, school, and other gatherings. Would you like some help understanding when mental health symptoms can become problematic? When do we reach out for supports outside of the home? This upcoming MNO Mental Health and Addictions webinar with Dr. Michael Cheng (CHEO) and Jessica Brown (MNO) will help our community caregivers, guardians, parents, and supports to identify and better understand some common mental health related barriers and conditions that can present in children and youth. You will learn about mental wellness, common mental health illnesses and conditions, as well as strategies for knowing when and how to access supports within your community, or through the Metis Nation of Ontario.
Join us on November 4, 2021 to learn more about mental health and wellness in our youth, as well as when and how to seek out additional supports!
