Inclusive Child & Youth Mental Health: Training for the Digital Age

DIVERT Mental Health is excited to host a one-day event that brings mental health trainees, faculty, clinicians, industry, and NGO staff to learn together. The event is dedicated to innovative learning activities taught by a multisectoral group of experts ranging from patient-partners to policy makers and clinicians to researchers to innovators. Our day focuses on the intersection of inclusivity (diverse ways of understanding mental health; diverse populations) and accessibility (innovative technologies that increase reach of mental health interventions) in mental health. Participants from a diverse area of disciplines are invited, particularly psychology, medicine, nursing, social work, rehabilitation sciences, computer sciences. Expect to leave with new knowledges and skills to support your work in mental health!

Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided to all in-person participants.

DIVERT will be using PheedLoop Event Management software to allow for a more fun and interactive experience for all participants. Following Eventbrite registration, both in-person and online participants will be invited to join our PheedLoop event platform. Through Pheedloop, registrants will receive up to the minute information on our sessions and speakers, and will be able to connect with each other through the platform’s Networking tool.

The Gamification tool on the platform will be a fun way for participants to gain points as individuals or in groups towards prizes. Stay tuned to find out more about what the prizes will be!
