Whether directly or indirectly, mental health issues affect all Canadians alive today. This is especially true with youth. According to the CMHA, a staggering 3.2 million people under the age of 18 are at heightened risk of developing major depressive episodes.
To help address these issues, MacGregor EMC, in collaboration with the Mental Health Initiative of the Evangelical Mennonite Conference are hosting a day-long workshop dedicated to talking about the history of mental health, about good self-care as well as caring for others with mental health issues, as well as talking particularly about caring for youth, with a particular eye being given to recognizing and addressing self harm in a helpful and effective way.
Whether you are a youth worker or teacher looking for professional development, a parent or just want to learn more about this often difficult subject, we invite you to come to find out more. The sessions are led by trained professionals who have experience dealing with their subject matter.
For more information, or to get a list of the different sessions, please contact either MacGregor EMC by phone 204-685-2293 or by email, or the EMC National office by phone at 204-326-6401.
*Note* Given the nature of the afternoon discussions on teenage self harm, we ask that all attenders for these sessions be over the age of 18. We thank you for your understanding.
