Children’s Mental Health Ontario (CMHO) has announced that registration is open for its 42nd Annual Conference. The conference, Getting it Right for Kids and Families, will provide an opportunity for community agency leaders, frontline workers, educators, government policy-makers, parents and teachers to share knowledge and network in their continued mission to improve services for children, youth and families faced with mental health challenges.
The conference is being held November 23-25, 2014, at the Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel in Toronto and is the largest annual child and youth mental health conference in Canada. The goal of the conference is to strengthen and support a collective commitment to improving quality of care in community-based mental health services for children and youth.
The 2014 conference program includes thought-provoking and informative keynote speakers, such as Dr. Michael Ungar, who will discuss a number of ways to effectively break down service silos without damaging the client-worker relationship; and Dr. Patrick Corrigan, who will review effective approaches to changing mental health stigma. The program also includes more than 40 educational workshops including a workshop presented by renowned advocate for children’s issues Dr. Jean Clinton.
