Program

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to engage all interested participants from Atlantic Canada and beyond, ASI 2020 will be offered on a robust online conference platform as an Atlantic Policy Forum on infant, child and youth mental health promotion.  With the theme Upstream investment in Mental Health Promotion – The Answer to the Mental Health Crisis, the forum will consider the state of mental health of children and youth before the pandemic and as an aftermath of the pandemic and explore means by which mental health promoting policies can be sustained and/or developed. Planned for the dates of August 24-26, 2020, the Forum will engage policy influencers in Atlantic Canada, i.e., politicians, public servants and civil society. Together we will learn about the evidence on “upstream” factors that influence mental health, and acquire skills to influence, develop and implement upstream policy!
