Building for Mental Health: Healthy Built Environments for Children and Youth @ Online
Dec 11 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

This webinar will describe how the built environment intersects with the social environment to influence the mental health of children and youth, offering evidence and defining roles for public health .

This webinar will focus on factors in the urban built and social environments that promote child and youth mental health, and how public health can work to support these factors through upstream approaches. Content will include research that explores:

  • How positive mental health in children and youth is impacted by characteristics of the built and social environments;
  • The intersection between the built and social environments and how they impact child and youth mental health;
  • Equity-related influences within the built and social environments on child and youth mental health; and
  • The role of public health in promoting population mental health through built environment initiatives.

The goal of this webinar are to offer evidence and define roles for public health that will inform policy actions to address inequities and create healthy built environments that promote child and youth mental health. This webinar can support working towards meeting Medical Officer of Health competencies, especially “communication, collaboration, and advocacy for the public’s health”.

This webinar is hosted by the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health.

You Are How You Eat: Food, Culture, and Social Inequality @ Online
Dec 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Though the need to eat is certainly a constant, ideas about food and how we cook, eat, and share it are constantly shifting. The culture of food both reflects and help to shape our society.

For the past 20 years, interest in food — from the Food Network to an exploding restaurant culture to an increase in appreciation for home cooking — has been on the ascent. This has been buoyed by a multi-faceted “food movement” that contains everyone from farmers to chefs concerned eaters to health and food justice activists.

Though there are synergies and momentum toward progressive change building within this movement, there are also complex dynamics related to race, class, gender, and social inequality.

Sociologist Alice Julier has looked at subjects ranging from food as a vehicle for gentrification to how race, gender, and socio-economic experience reveal themselves around the dinner table.

In this webinar, Alice will dig into how inequality plays out through a variety of aspects of our current food culture.

This webinar is hosted by Community Food Centres Canada.
