Join us for a Twitter Chat on Monday April 10th 
Between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. EST. 

#EAMentalHealth

The goal of the Twitter chat is to foster dialogue on how we can make the mental health of emerging adults a priority in Canada.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) is pleased to announce that we will be releasing the Consensus Statement on the Mental Health of Emerging Adults: Making Transitions a Priority in Canada on Friday April 7, 2017, which coincides with World Health Day 2017 and supports the “Depression: Let’s Talk” campaign. This timely report has the potential to inform provincial and territorial thinking about how to prioritize youth and emerging adult mental health within funding streams earmarked for mental health.

Following the release of the consensus statement, the MHCC is hosting a Twitter chat on Monday April 10, 2017 between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00p.m. EST. The goal of the Twitter chat is to foster dialogue on how we can make the mental health of emerging adults a priority in Canada. Co-designed by emerging adults, the questions that will be discussed during the chat include:

1. What do mental health services that meet the needs of emerging adults look like?

2. What barriers would need to be addressed to ensure continuity of care for emerging adults?

3. What does joint partnership with emerging adults as experts in their own health care look like?  How can we meaningfully engage families of choice in providing mental health care and support for emerging adults?

4. What do culturally safe and appropriate mental health services for emerging adults and their families look like?

Please watch for more messaging about the release of the consensus statement, and we hope you can join  for this engaging and important Twitter chat! #EAMentalHealth
