CICMH Northern (Sault Ste. Marie) Regional Forum
We would like to invite you to our upcoming Northern Region Forum at Sault College, on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.
The forum is a one day event that takes place between 9:30 am and 3:00 pm. The goal is to bring regional post-secondary institutions and community organizations together to highlight the great work being done, seek and build collaborations and to facilitate networking. We have also added a one hour session on compassionate fatigue at the start of the day. Campus professionals working directly with students tend to be the first point of contact for students experiencing emotional, mental and physical difficulties. Providing this level of constant care is demanding and can encroach upon the personal wellbeing of staff if adequate support measures are not in place. Mental Health Works (MHW) is a social-enterprise of the Canadian Mental Health Association that delivers mental health training to organizations nationwide. This MHW workshop on “Traumatic Stress and Compassion Fatigue Essentials” presents an overview of secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue. This workshop is a great learning opportunity for campus staff that provides tangible tools to support mental health and contribute to everyone’s wellbeing on campus.
The forum is free to attend and includes lunch.
Please note: this forum is for campuses and community organizations ONLY. We encourage campuses to invite community agencies in their area.
