CfEE Webinar: Youth with Mental Health Issues in the Employment Sector

This month’s webinar showcases a mental health project and resource from Youth Employment Services (YES) in Toronto.

In this presentation, Marysia Parry of YES provides a basic overview of mental health, discusses the benefits of employment for those living with mental health issues, reviews best practices and tips on how employment counsellors can best support clients living with mental health issues, and explores the new employment resource: Empowering the Employment Sector to Better Serve Youth with Mental Health Issues.

Marysia also shares the results from the Lighthouse Project, in which youth with mental health challenges benefit from on-the-job support, training, and personalized coaching at every step. More about the Lighthouse Project can also be found on their website, here. The presentation slides are available here.
