Wednesday 05 December 2012, 10:00 - 11:30

The CAMH Resource Centre recently completed a scoping review of youth mental health promotion programming in Canada using a youth engagement lens to identify successful programs. As a scoping review, this research was exploratory and aimed to map the extent, range, and nature of research activity in the area of youth mental health promotion programming. This webinar will provide an overview of this review highlighting results and recommendations for research and action.

Representatives from two programs identified in this review, will share information about program objectives, youth involvement, mental health outcomes, evaluation/evidence and comment on the relevance of this review's recommendations in the area of youth mental health promotion.

Faron Gogo, Youth Coordinator, as well a youth participant, will be joining on behalf of Youth Net/ Réseau Ado Ottawa. Youth Net/ Réseau Ado Ottawa is a bilingual regional mental health promotion and intervention program run by youth, for youth.

Also, Dr. Claire Crooks, Associate Director of the CAMH Centre for Prevention Science, will share information on the Fourth "R", a comprehensive school-based program designed to include students, teachers, parents, and the community in reducing violence and risk behaviours.

Opportunity for comments, questions and discussion will be provided to share examples of other successful youth mental health promotion programming.
