In the Spotlight this Month - Survey on Public Health Practitioners' Needs for Public Health Ethics in Canada
.

If you are a public health practitioner in Canada, the Centre is seeking your collaboration in responding to a survey meant to find out what you might need in order to better integrate public health ethics into your practice. Your responses will help to guide our work, and the work of others, in developing tools or resources in public health ethics. This five-minute survey is intended for all stakeholders, regardless of where you work or at what organizational level (local, regional, provincial or federal).

What's New from the NCCs? 

The NCCs launch a new collection, Population mental health promotion for children and youth

What do we know about promoting mental health for children and youth at the population level? And what is the role of public health in this work? Staff from across the six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCs) have been asking these questions in response to gaps identified by the public health community, and can now offer a series of new resources: The population mental health promotion for children and youth collection.

Click here to learn more about the collection (on the NCCPH website).


.

As part of this project, the NCCHPP has published a topical paper entitled: Healthy public policies and population mental health promotion for children and youth. This document uses the evidence from a needs assessment completed in collaboration with the other NCCs.
