February 27 & 28 • 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. | Free • Lunch Provided
Open to: service providers, educators, healthcare providers, law enforcement, employers & government

Join us as we explore:
- going beyond multiculturalism and diversity and move into anti-racism
- moving away from a single narrative of migration and see the great diversity that characterizes the experiences of newcomers to Canada
- a broad understanding of mental health, incorporating the social determinants that impact the health of particular individuals and communities
- a variety of mental health perspectives and approaches, such as 'sanism' and 'mentalism'
- the major stressors that affect particular groups and communities
- understanding stress not only as an individual factor but as a social phenomenon rooted in specific socio-economic conditions
- the concept of 'intersectionality' to highlight the shifting nature of identity and multiple ways of being
