FamilySmart is offering Working Well Together Training a number of times over the coming year.

We are looking for:

What is Working Well Together Training? The goal of the training is to enhance child/youth mental health services and support.  It brings young adults, parents/caregivers, and service providers together to learn and share their perspectives. By learning together, participants help each other understand what it looks like and sounds like when things go well between young adults, parents/caregivers, and service providers. We know that relationships matter and can enhance the mental health of children and youth.

FamilySmart has a Together-Centred approach, which means EVERYONE’s experience, expertise, and contributions are acknowledged, respected, and valued.  Everyone is seen and treated as an asset.
