Are you a parent, educator or service provider looking to increase your knowledge of child and youth mental health, substance use, and healthy living topics?
Our monthly Pinwheel Education Series give you a chance to learn about key mental health topics from a panel that features experts, parents and youth with lived experience. The format of the series is panel discussion followed by Q&A with the audience. Examples of topics we have covered in the past include psychosis, self-harm, binge eating, the benefits of mindfulness, and the mental health of Aboriginal youth. These education sessions are free and open to everyone.
Our upcoming session is on the topic of Skipping Lunch at School. Skipping lunch is common among students who have no time or appetite, and who are busy, stressed, or in a bad mood. Skipping lunch might mean a student is struggling with eating. It could also become problematic for a student who is recovering from an eating disorder. Join us for a discussion on how to prevent the skipping lunch phenomenon that’s happening in our schools. Sarah Carten, a Community Nutritionist, Diana Mogensen, a Special Education Teacher, and Mary McCraken, a Parent Peer Support Worker, will weigh in on this important topic. This event will take place on Thursday, November 10, 2011 from 12-1pm.
