This workshop is for anyone who works with parents, families, and children in a professional capacity.

Join us for a panel discussion from experts in their fields.  In our recent original research study of racialized, marginalized and historically excluded families across Canada, 59% reported being unaware of how and where to seek mental health support. In a country where we celebrate diversity, we need to do better at ensuring everyone - regardless of barriers - has equal access to and receives appropriate care. 

Join us as we delve into the fascinating findings and collaborate to discover how we can better serve our most vulnerable families. 

  1. Understand your role in supporting parents' mental health from all backgrounds, including marginalized, racialized, historically excluded and underrepresented.

  2. Hear what marginalized and racialized parents shared regarding barriers, challenges, and first-hand experiences with mental health service providers. 

  3. Learn about your role in supporting parents through trauma-informed care and confronting inherent and unconscious bias.

  4. Learn how agency collaboration is the most robust strategy to address healthcare system and service gaps to better support marginalized and racialized parents.
