As part of TOPHC (the Ontario Public Health Convention), the CAMH Health Promotion Resource Centre and Public Health Ontario, will co-host the full-day workshop Mental Health and Healthy Weights for Children and Youth: A TOPHC Preconvention Knowledge Exchange Forum.
The workshop will:
- Explore the intersection of public health activities that promote mental health and healthy weights in children and youth
- Showcase the work of Ontario public health units in promoting mental health and healthy weights, including how they define their role in addressing mental health.
- Share tools, research and methods, and practical skills and strategies
The promotion of healthy weights in children and youth is a major priority in Ontario and this workshop will be an important step in moving this important topic forward.
Registration for the workshop is now open. Due to space limitations, registration is only open to staff working in Ontario public health units: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/mental-health-and-healthy-weights-for-childr....
