Mental Health Knowledge Network Webinar Series

CWLC has launched its Mental Health Knowledge Network (MHKN) webinar series - a unique and valuable knowledge-sharing forum by members, for members. MHKN is a compelling webinar series on child, youth, and family mental health issues specifically designed for frontline workers.  It showcases subject experts and CWLC members to share expertise, best practices, evaluations and innovation in mental health services and support to children and their families. MHKN helps you stay up-to-date, by bringing the experts directly to your desktop! Please join us! Free for CWLC members.

MHKN sessions are easy to attend. You will receive attendance instructions by email one day prior to any given event, but you can also see attendance instructions here.
