486 Ester Road
The transition to adulthood is a critical developmental stage. Youth experiencing mental health and substance use concerns at this time may also face challenges related to housing, justice involvement, education, and employment. And individuals from vulnerable populations experience these challenges more acutely.
This one-day knowledge exchange event is for service providers, persons with lived experience, family members, policymakers, researchers, and other stakeholders in Ontario’s mental health and substance use system. Attendees will learn about various initiatives and how CAMH’s Provincial System Support Program (PSSP), through the Service Collaboratives initiative, has been working with communities to improve services and systems for transition-age youth in Ontario.
This event features keynote speakers:
Dr. Manion is a clinical psychologist and scientist-practitioner who has worked with children, youth, and families for over 30 years. He is a clinical professor in the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa and the director of Youth Mental Health Research at the Institute for Mental Health Research.
Dr. Henderson is a Clinician Scientist and Director of the Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre for Child, Youth and Family Mental Health at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. She is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto.
- A panel of youth with lived experience
- A panel of experts, including Dr. Javeed Sukhera, Dr. Chiachen Cheng, and Dr. Aristotle Voineskos, and a session on storytelling and traditional knowledge with John Rice
