March 15, 2013
Minding Our Bodies will be hosting a one-day knowledge exchange and networking forum, Pooling Ideas, that will showcase the most promising practices based on the 2012/2013 Minding Our Bodies-funded programs. Program coordinators/ managers and allied partners will share what works in physical activity and healthy eating programming to support people at risk of, or living with, mental health and addiction issues.
The Pooling Ideas forum is intended for the general public as well as researchers, decision-makers and program planners, staff and peer leaders. Forum participants will have the opportunity to hear panelists and participate in discussion with program leaders who run recovery-focused healthy living programs involving community gardens, collective kitchens and physical activity. Learn about strategies, resources and new opportunities to promote mental health and network with organizations, consumer/survivors, decision-makers and researchers.
