ASI 2019 Forum
Supportive Environments for Child and Youth
Mental Health – Our Shared Responsibility!
August 19-21, 2019 ~ Charlottetown, PEI
Following our successful ASI 2018 Forum on developing a whole society approach to promoting child and youth mental health, we are expanding on this theme by focusing on supportive environments – social and physical – that can influence mental health and well-being. Social environments include families, communities, schools and the virtual environment of social media, while physical environments include both built and natural. The importance of cultural connection will be considered throughout. The 2019 program will include updates on the Call to Action, Indigenous ways of knowing, and connections to the Sustainable Development Goals.
We invite you to become involved and support this collaborative work through our 2019 program, which will build on the momentum of ASI programming 2015-2018 that has advanced child and youth mental health promotion in Atlantic Canada.
The Atlantic Summer Institute (ASI) will be a bilingual event, held at the University of Prince Edward Island from August 19-21, 2019. A Youth Leadership Program and Children’s Program will also be offered.
Early Bird registration will open mid-March. Stay tuned!
