Panel on child and youth mental health promotion at the Atlantic Summer Institute on Healthy and Safe Communities 2018
On August 21, 2018, NCCHPP's Pascale Mantoura contributed to the Atlantic Summer Institute 2018's opening Panel: Convergence of Current Frameworks – Addressing Mental Health as a Whole Society!
September 2018. Description.

The opening panel proposed a discussion amongst panelists on four frameworks which can provide guidance to a whole society approach to child and youth mental health promotion, as well as be useful in guiding future policy and programs. Pascale Mantoura shared perspectives on the population mental health framework for public health, developed by the NCCHPP. Ambassador Fredrick Wangabo Mwenengabo addressed the United Nations' sustainable development goals. Christian Whalen discussed the UN's Convention for the rights of the child. Brenda Restoule elaborated on the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework.

Considering the theories, strategies and cultural bases on which the individual frameworks were developed, panelists commented on differences, but mostly on similarities amongst frameworks to advance mental health for children and youth.
