CMHA staff and front-line workers from across the province will gather in Toronto this month on April 26, 2015 for the first-ever the CMHA Ontario Division Conference. The 2015 conference, “Journey Together: A Person Centered Approach to Empower Change in the Community Mental Health and Addictions Sector,” will explore the on-the-ground work happening around the province through our branches.
The event offers the unique opportunity for CMHA staff from across Ontario to learn from one another.
The conference will feature four streams of programming, including front line streams on housing, community reintegration and living with health and respect across the lifespan.
Governance and senior management streams will also be offered.
A number of inspiring keynotes will speak at the event, including renowned musician Jann Arden and former NHL goaltender Clint Malarchuk, who will share their personal experiences around mental health and well-being.
As part of the conference, CMHA Ontario Division will be hosting a series of mental health and addictions related training opportunities on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. Though the main conference program is limited to CMHA staff and volunteers, training sessions are open to external organizations wishing to participate.
Sessions include training in Trauma Informed Care, Mental Health Works, Mood Walks, and Motivational Interviewing.
