    Mental Health, Faith and Youth

     Sanctuary-General-480_(1).png

    Statistics affirm young people experience mental health concerns related to identity, relationships, and their future. How can faith communities encourage and support youth as they care for their mental health?

    This workshop will build on basic mental health literacy and then delve into constructive ways to interact with young people who are asking questions, whose behavioural changes are concerning, or who may be in distress. Participants should leave the workshop with an increased awareness of how mental health affects the lives of young people, and with ways to confidently engage with youth in and through the church.

    Featured speakers:
    Terresa Augustine, MA, Director of Programming, Sanctuary Mental Health Ministry 
    Fred Chou, MA, RCC, CCC, PhD Candidate, Counselling Psychology
