Integrated Youth Services: Laying the Foundation 12:00 pm
Integrated Youth Services: Laying the Foundation @ Online
Dec 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Integrated youth services (IYS) often provide a “one-stop-shop” for mental health, physical health, substance use and addictions, education, vocational supports, housing, and other social services. IYS initiatives meet the needs of youth and young adults aged 12-25 across multiple domains of their lives by reducing systemic barriers, including the division between paediatric and adult services, and limited cross-sector collaboration. Frayme has had the unique opportunity to learn from 10 international IYS initiatives to gain ‘on the ground’ practical information that’s largely unavailable in the literature. This webinar is the first in a 6-part series and will present aggregated findings on how these IYS are organized and operated. Considerations discussed will include partner and stakeholder engagement, rationales for establishment, organizational principles, governance and leadership structures, funding, and barriers and enablers. There will be time at the end of the presentation for questions. Learning objectives: This webinar will allow participants to: Learn about the scope of integrated youth services (IYS), including the principles, processes, and funding sources that guide and facilitate their establishment Differentiate between IYS networks and single sites, and understand their governance structures and responsibilities Explore enablers, barriers, and sustainability concerns related to IYS This webinar is hosted by Frayme.

Learning and Education: Living in Niagara Working Session @ Niagara Falls Public Library - LaMarsh Room
Jan 29 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Community partners are invited to join Niagara Connects for one or more of 12 working sessions in January, 2019 to review and modernize the Indicators and Measures for each Living in Niagara report Sector.

The Living in Niagara – 2017 report was released 1 year ago. Now is the time to begin building the 2020 version! The report weaves data and knowledge together, to describe quality of life across the 12 Living in Niagara Sectors. The Sectors align with the Social Determinants of Health; their combined data provides a holistic picture of socio-economic progress in Niagara.

Report construction methodology has evolved since its inception in 2008. Indicators and Measures in the 2020 report will be updated to reflect current practice and new knowledge within each Sector.

A region that offers many opportunities for its citizens to learn and engage in education provides a measure of the health of the area. Work, creativity, prosperity and health are all linked to education and literacy. Read more about the Learning and Education Sector here.

Knock-Out Stigma: Promoting Athlete Mental Health on Campus @ Online
Jan 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Post-secondary athletes often face significant stress, not only are they facing the pressures of excelling at their sport, but they’re also doing so during a critical educational period in their life. From balancing their practice and class schedules to completing assignments and studying for exams, the mounting stress they experience can lead to anxiety and depression and impact their overall mental health and performance.

This webinar aims to show how Talk Today, one of the most comprehensive mental health/sport-related programs in Canada, is breaking down the stigma of seeking help and promoting a safe environment for athletes to speak about their mental health challenges.

Since 2014, over 2,500 players, coaches and billet families across the Canadian Hockey League have received suicide-prevention workshops. Originally for athletes 15 years and over, Talk Today has since evolved and has provided educational opportunities for 5,300 elementary school kids, hundreds of athletes under 15, and athletes in high school, college and university.

This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.
