GUEST – Dr. Susan MacKenzie, psychiatrist and Clinical Head, Outpatient Child, Youth and Family Services at CAMH.
TOPIC – Understanding mental illness in children and youth. Signs and symptoms of child and youth mental illness and tips for parents & grandparents.
INFO – 70 per cent of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence. CAMH’s Child, Youth and Family Services provides treatment for children and youth who experience a broad range of complex behavioural and emotional difficulties and/or addiction issues.
What kind of mental health issues do children/youth experience? What are the signs and symptoms parents and/or grandparents should watch for? How early can these signs be noticed? How can we distinguish a potential issue from normal behaviour as kids are growing up? If parents or grandparents notice something is wrong, what can they do to seek help? What treatment options are available for kids? Why is it important for kids to get help early?

MOSES ZNAIMER PRESENTS – IDEACITY 2014 – 50 SPEAKERS – 3 GREAT PARTIES – A TON OF INSPIRATION
“Canada’s Premier Meeting of the Minds” , celebrates its 15th anniversary / June 18, 29 & 20 at the spectacular Koerner Hall, Toronto
Each June in Toronto, Moses Znaimer hosts the brightest and the best, together with their biggest ideas, for a morning-to-midnight, three-day and three-night extravaganza called ideacity – an immersive, eclectic and wildly exciting conference that celebrates forward-thinking.
The 15th annual ideacity conference will take place June 18, 19, and 20 at Toronto’s spectacular Koerner Hall.
ideacity is not themed around any one topic, issue or business. The conference gathers distinguished artists, activists, adventurers, astronomers, authors, botanists, climatologists, cosmologists, doctors, designers, entertainers, filmmakers, inventors, magicians, musicians, scientists, spiritualists, technologists, and zoologists. There are no scripted speeches, breakout or parallel sessions. Rather, everyone is in one place and experiencing the same narrative with extra-long fully catered schmooze breaks to get to know fellow attendees and speak with the presenters themselves.
This year’s ideacity brings together another luminous collection of thinkers and doers in exceptional “pods” on:
DNA: Resurrection vs Deconstruction, Radical Longevity, Climate Change: Alarmists vs Skeptics, Civil Rights & Medical Marijuana , Sports & Adventure, Innovation & Design, The World of Animals, Global Transformers, Technology, Space
Twenty-one presenters, representing the above topics, are listed below in alphabetical order (discover more at www.ideacityonline.com)
