Families, Together Cross-Cultural Video & Discussion Guide Now Available in 7 Languages!

Meredith on January 29, 2013

I am happy to share that the new cross-cultural video called Families, Together: Supporting the Mental Well-being of Children & Youth is now available to watch for free on the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre website. The short video features 4 families from different cultural backgrounds each sharing their family’s experience supporting a child or youth with a mental health challenge, as well as 2 health professionals who share their thoughts on how families can support the mental well-being of children and youth. The video is available in English and with subtitles in French, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Farsi, and Punjabi.

We hope the video will be a useful resource to help families start talking about mental health, what the signs and symptoms might be if their child is experiencing a mental health challenge, and where they can access support if they need to. I encourage families, friends, and others to watch the video and then use the discussion guide (also available in 7 languages!) to talk about the main themes in the video.

If you are interested in linking to the video from your blog or website, we have created fun promotional web buttons in all 7 languages that you can use as graphics. We have also created a multilingual poster to help promote the videos. If interested in putting up a poster in your workplace or organization or using one of the web buttons, please email me at meredith.woermke@bcmhs.bc.ca.

I hope you will all watch the video, talk about the themes in the video with your friends and family, and share it with others!
