What Is Mental Health Empowerment Day and Who Should Attend?
Mental Health Empowerment Day is designed to empower all those who work or live with children and youth who are dealing with mental health issues, one of the most pervasive issues in the world today.
The goal of MHED is to provide concrete tools for participants in our schools, community institutions and youth programs who work daily with this population. Each of these frontline workers can play an active role in making the lives of our young people better. We also speak directly to parents, and help them to better understand how best to support their children. Through Mental Health Empowerment Day, we want to reduce stigma, provide a forum for discussion and give tools for action.
Planning for our third annual event is currently underway.
This year’s event will explore the theme “what I wish you knew.” Through the professional and lived experience of students, educators, psychiatrists, parents and peer supporters, we will tell you what we wish you knew - and what you need to know - to empower the young people in your life.
