Join the Nutrition Resource Centre and the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre for a webinar to discuss applying the newly revised CAMH Best Practice Guidelines for Mental Health Promotion Programs: Children & Youth (2014) to nutrition programming.
The Best Practice Guidelines are intended to provide health and social service workers with current, evidence-based approaches to incorporating mental health promotion principles and practices in interventions directed toward children (aged 7–12 years) and youth (aged 13–19 years). This resource is the result of a long-standing partnership between CAMH, Toronto Public Health and the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto.
- Provide a shared understanding of mental health, mental illness and mental health promotion.
- Introduce the Best Practice Guidelines for Mental Health Promotion Programs: Children & Youth.
- Provide context on the research and evidence that informs the resource.
- Consider the application of the Best Practice Guidelines for Mental Health Promotion Programs to programs addressing healthy eating amongst children and youth.
