Crossroads in Mental Health Crisis and Law Enforcement 12:00 pm
Crossroads in Mental Health Crisis and Law Enforcement @ Online
Jan 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Evolving social, economic and fiscal realities have created a strain in the treatment of mental illness. As a result of this strain, police services often become the first line of contact between a person in crisis and available resources. Police services have had to adapt to this new reality and find collaborative approaches to resolve these difficult, sometimes violent situations. The emergence of mobile crisis teams, situation tables and better training for front line officers has made an impact for some, but the need for a more integrated strategy still exists. This webinar will focus on the York Regional Police integrated strategy which includes all of the above and additional resources such as the digitized Brief Mental Health Screener, two full time social workers, a seniors safety unit which specializes in issues such as dementia and vulnerable persons, and Police/Hospitals Relations Committees as well as other resources and future plans. This webinar is hosted by the Human Services & Justice Coordinating Committee.

The Youth Voice Report: Five Big Ideas on How to Promote Mental Health from 2500 Young Advocates @ Online
Jan 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
The Jack.org youth voice report outlines five key recommendations to promote youth mental health: Help young people navigate the complex mental health care system so they can receive care that meets their needs in a timely fashion. Deliver mental health services that meet young people’s needs by consulting young people on how to deliver mental health services and involving young people in decisions that impact their mental health. Protect, promote, and maintain positive mental health on campuses by: managing crisis, offering a range of mental health resources, identifying and responding to struggle early, and applying a mental health lens to all policies, programs, and practices. Reimagine teaching and assessment practices to alleviate mental health struggle among young people. Encourage better social media practices by developing evidence-based guidelines on healthy social media use for young people and creating digital environments that foster positive mental health. Join the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health for a webinar to hear more about the findings and recommendations outlined in the report.
