An Evening to Support Children’s Mental Health

Talking about children’s mental health isn’t always easy, but it is certainly a conversation worth having. On Wednesday, May 14, Dr. Stan Kutcher, an internationally recognized expert in the area of child and adolescent mental health, will be speaking to parents and caregivers in the Garden City. Held at St. Catharines Collegiate on Catherine Street, the event is free for the community to attend.

“Dr. Kutcher’s presentation will help equip parents and caregivers with strategies to support their children so they are better able to build strong personal relationships, focus on their learning and appropriately deal with life’s challenges,” says Tracy Sacco, DSBN Student Achievement Leader.

Done in a friendly and interactive style, the presentation will provide attendees with an understanding of the issues around mental health and offer coping strategies.

Dr. Kutcher was a founding member of the Canadian Association for Mood and Anxiety Treatment, the Advisory Board for the Institute of Neuroscience, Mental Health and Addictions (Canadian Institutes of Health Research), the Science Advisory Committee of NeuroScience Canada, and the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research. He has served on the Board of the Canadian Society for International Health; and the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation and the Mental Health Commission of Canada's Child and Youth Advisory Panel.
