The Oakville community is invited to attend a FREE information session on the subject of mental wellness.

This is intended to be an awareness-building evening where knowledge about youth mental health will be shared by a distinguished panel including:

Anita Federici, a psychologist at the WaterStone Clinic: a clinical psychologist and a registered member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Anita is a Clinical Consultant for the Waterstone Clinic where she provides training, supervision, and individual therapy. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from York University in 2008 and completed a Research and Clinical Fellowship in the Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in 2009. Anita served as Director of the DBT Program at the Cleveland Center for Eating Disorders between 2009 and 2011.

These three panelists will address the importance of early intervention,and will also share their experiences of supporting youth through mental health challenges. We ask that only Adults attend given the nature of the content. There will be ample time given as well for audience questions to be submittedto the panel members.
