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.
