The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre Needs Family and Professional Advisory Committee Members

Kaleigh M., Project Coordinator on January 24, 2017

What is the Project?

The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre is beginning work on the redevelopment of the current website to ensure a more optimal experience for users, including parents, families, caregivers, and professionals, when they are seeking mental health related information, resources, services, and support for children and youth.

We will be forming two groups one with parents, caregivers and families, and the other with health and education professionals. Each group will include members from around the province.

Why Should You Participate?

The parent, caregiver, family and professional perspectives are central to the success of the Kelty website to inform, educate, and support positive wellbeing and mental health for children, youth and families. This will be a valuable learning opportunity where you can share your views. You will be part of an innovative team that will directly help children, youth and families.

How Much Time Will This Require?

We anticipate 4-6 meetings between February 2017 and December 2017. Meetings will be approximately 1-2 hours and can be attended in person or, for those outside of the lower mainland, via teleconference or some other web-based means.

How do I apply to volunteer?

If you have any questions, please call or email Lisa Woudzia, Program Manager for the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre, at 604-875-2345 ext. 5590 or Thank you for your interest!
