The Youth Mental Health Sharing and Learning Community is an interactive virtual space that brings people together in Saskatchewan around the topic of youth mental health. It is a place where individuals and organizations can build relationships with others working in the space, share ideas, share the progress of current work, and engage in a process of collective learning.
What is a sharing and learning community?
Collaboration can help further advance activities promoting youth mental health and wellness in Saskatchewan by accelerating the spread of work and experience gained from these activities. Those working in the space have expressed a desire to come together to better understand the work Is currently happening in the province and the potential to learn and share together to continue forward momentum. By creating a space to share and learn from others, the Youth Mental Health Sharing and Learning Community is an opportunity to build relationships, explore what is working, and examine future collaboration opportunities to improve youth mental health.
