Join us for 'Exploring the Many Sides of Mental Health', part of our educational series supporting the launch of our transition planning program - Launch into Life!

This 3hr workshops will examine the two sides of a family coin as sometimes the challenges and pressures of typical family life are magnified or multiplied by the additional stresses and obstacles of caring for a child living with a disability. The session will examine parental and youth mental health through a lens of lived disability and offer proactive and evidence-based practices that can increase mental health outcomes for your family, and, yourself as parent, guardian, or caregiver.
