Mental health and addiction issues are prevalent for families involved with the child protection system – many would say these issues are the most common underlying concern leading to apprehensions.

This year's program will look at the complex and often concurrent issues of mental health and addiction. You will gain insight into the intergenerational impact of these issues for many families dealing with the painful legacy of Indian Residential Schools.

You will hear from professionals in the fields of medicine, psychology and law enforcement on the services they provide to individuals struggling with mental health and/or addiction, as well as their roles in relation to child protection matters.
