"Honouring the Past & Embracing the Future: Mental Health & Indigenous Youth

The University of Calgary's Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research & Education, in partnership with the Mental Health Commission of Canada invite you to the symposium - "Honouring the Past & Embracing the Future:  Mental Health & Indigenous Youth".  The 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 well-being 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.
