|Introduction to Promoting Positive Mental Health||
"There is no health without mental health."
Mental health promotion strategies are relevant for all members of society and apply across the lifespan and a wide range of settings. Promoting mental health is a shared responsibility requiring active participation of many sectors beyond health and depends on intersectoral strategies. A wealth of evidence is now available with respect to the factors that lead to positive mental health as well as what governments, organizations, and communities can do to contribute to positive mental health.
In its third iteration, this introductory webinar presented by the CAMH Resource Centre has been updated to include new tools, resources and reports released since June 2011. It will provide an overview of mental health promotion concepts, strategies and evidence-informed practices and will introduce participants to resources and practical tools to support the promotion of mental health in a variety of settings.
