- December 3, 2013
The primary aim of the conference is to develop consensus statements on practices that support child, youth and parental mental health within the context of the family, while acknowledging the unique needs and rights of young people. We want to know what evidence resonates with youth and families. What is their experience of promising practice and how can we engage youth and families to help define “family smart” practice within the service systems that touch their lives?
- November 18, 2013The event took place on 12 September, 6 at Dodson House, 25 East Hastings Street, Vancouver.
Art30 focused on how creatively giving, receiving and sharing can empower us and contribute to a kinder society. There were talks, music, activities and, of course, art for sale. A full 50% of the proceeds of art sales was donated to The Institute of Families.
A big thank you to Lewis Evans and friends for your desire to make a difference to children and youth across Canada
