The UBC Learning Circle is pleased to announce that we are partnering with the First Nations Health Authority to facilitate a series of video conference and webinar sessions regarding the FNHA Aboriginal Mental Wellness & Substance Use approach. These sessions will enable community input into the planning process from BC’s rural and remote regions.
This is your opportunity to get involved in your region’s planning sessions! These three-hour long events will help to set goals and outcomes for five in-person regional implementation forums that will take place in May and June 2013.
Regional Video conference and Webinar Dates
April 15 – Vancouver Island
April 18 – Fraser
April 24 – Vancouver Coastal
April 25 – Interior
April 29 – Northern
These sessions will attempt to discover what communities want to get out of the regional planning forums. FNHA health planners will lead a discussion on community-identified goals for the regional in-person forums, propose invitations for potential participants to attend regional in-person planning sessions, and brainstorm other important issues to bring to regional discussions.
Who Should Attend?
These sessions are applicable to anyone who works in the area of First Nations and Aboriginal mental wellness and substance use.
Click here to register to attend your region’s session by video conference OR Adobe Connect (i.e. computer webinar). A teleconference option will also be available for these sessions.
