Annual Conference 2010
CMHO 2010 Annual Conference: Taking A Stand for Child & Youth Mental Health
It's an exciting time in the field of child and youth mental health so it is with great anticipation that we look forward to gathering at our annual conference "Taking a Stand for Child and Youth Mental Health." The spotlight has found our cause and unlike any time in our history, we're in the pages of the newspapers and the subject of much discussion at Queen's Park. Corporate philanthropy has turned its attention to us as well, with unprecedented announcements of millions of dollars to fund research and reduce stigma. At the same time, our sector is sparking some renewal of its own. Our agencies are looking at new ways of doing business, partnering and working across the spectrum to provide the best care possible for the children, youth and families they serve.Conference Program (PDF, 6 pages) Background Readings: (1) A Shared Responsibility: Ontario's Policy Framework for Child and Youth Mental Health (PDF) Leading Change from the Field - Part I: Amalgamation - A creative and innovative response and contributor to change (PDF, 21 pages) Leading Change from the Field - Part II: The Student Support Leadership Initiative in Algoma District (PDF, 17 pages) Leading Change from the Field - Part II: Implementing Evidence-Informed Practice - Kinark's Clinical Transformation Journey (PDF, 18 pages) Policy Discussion (PDF, 6 pages) Government Panel: Select Committee on Mental Health and Addictions (PDF, 7 pages) Government Panel: Promoting Sustainable Child Welfare in Ontario: An Update (PDF, 14 pages) Government Panel: Leadership in a Time of Challenge - Child and Youth Mental Health in Ontario (PDF, 15 pages)
Annual Conference 2009
Empowering Leadership in Challenging Times - Executive Directors and Agency Leaders Conference (2009)
Turbulent times require strong leaders. As the gap between children's mental health needs and agencies' service capacity grows ever-wider, as the Ontario government starts implementing its policy framework for child and youth mental health, and as both the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and an all-party Select Committee prepare their blueprints for the future of the broad mental health and addictions field, there is no doubt that our sector is facing challenging times. Children's Mental Health Ontario's 2009 Conference, "Empowering Leadership in Challenging Times", was specially designed for agency leaders, both senior staff and Board members.

Annual Conference 2007
Designing Our Future (2007)
Building on CMHO's previous conferences, 'Designing Our Future' focussed on how the Ministry of Children & Youth’s Policy Framework can help shape new directions in clinical practice, governance and management, and youth engagement.
This year's conference included a special youth-focussed program. The New Mentality (TNM) - a pilot project of CMHO and The Provincial Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health at CHEO - coordinated conference programming targeted at engaging youth. More than 30 young people from across the province attended; many of them are known to CMHO’s member centres as active leaders in their communities; and many have been involved with the mental health sector in some capacity.

CMHO's Clinical Webcast Series
This series was conceptualized as part of CMHO’s efforts to reorganize our conferences to reduce costs and increase accessibility. In light of this decision, and in keeping with our new strategic plan -- which emphasizes strengthening our accredited member agencies -- CMHO will be offering webcasts on clinically related topics throughout the year.
CMHO’s mandate was to accomplish this in an on-going way and in a broad-based format that was readily accessible to the majority of our member centres at minimal or no cost. With this imperative in mind, the clinical webcast series was conceived.
To date, CMHO has hosted the following webcasts, all of which can be accessed by CMHO members for free through the 'Members Only' section of this website.
- Collaborative Problem Solving Treatment Model
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Webcast
- Family Help Webcast
- Kinark's Clincial Supervision Model Webcast
Please check CMHO's event listings for upcoming Webcasts.
