CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH CONFERENCE 2019

April 26th – 28th, 2019

This three-day conference will include half and full day workshops pertaining to children’s mental health issues. All workshops will be led by Registered Psychologists & Professionals who specialize in children’s mental health or health care, and who teach and/ or practice locally in the Edmonton Area.

This conference is one of its kind in Alberta, an amazing opportunity to be a front runner in advocating for education around children’s mental health in our great city!

We invite you to be an advocate for children’s mental health and to join us in creating a community where the stigma around mental health is dismantled. Let’s move forward together in empowering parents, caregivers, mental health professionals and educators in creating a more hopeful, dynamic future for our youth.
