NEXT150 for young leaders
Young emerging leaders in Atlantic Canada are invited to participate in NEXT150 Atlantic Canada Conference and Model Parliament—a unique opportunity for young minds to discuss issues and solutions relevant to the next 150 years of Atlantic Canada in August. In honour of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, events and celebrations are taking place on local, regional, and national levels. With plenty of opportunities in 2017 for Canadians to come together, learn from each other, and understand Canada’s past and present, NEXT150 Atlantic Canada is a chance to acknowledge the last 150 years and visualize the next 150 years in the region. This NEXT 150 Conference will bring together stakeholders and future leaders to set a vision for our region. NEXT150 will partner with the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island for the Model Parliament portion of the Conference where the NEXT150 delegates will debate and vote on their desired direction of Atlantic Canada. The conference, from August 31 to September 2, 2017, will capture and consolidate solutions proposed by twenty-four emerging leaders from across the region. Applications are now being accepted from innovative and passionate young leaders from Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. The application and information regarding the conference can be found at www.next150ac.com.

Mental health resources at home
Mental health resources for children and youth are helping Island families from the comfort of their own homes. The online programming and telehealth services of the Strongest Families partnership have no wait times and fit families’ schedules, eliminating the need to travel, take time off work or school, or change normal routines. Over the past year, they have helped more than 130 families with children and youth ages 3 to 17 who experience behaviour, anxiety, and/or nighttime bedwetting problems. Families can be referred to the Strongest Families programs through their primary care provider or community mental health services by calling 1-866-833-5443. There are currently three programs offered: Behaviour program (for ages 3 to 12); Anxiety program (for ages 6 to 17); Nighttime bedwetting (for ages 5 to 12). Participants receive written materials and skill-demonstration videos (via handbooks or delivered by smart-website technology) as well as weekly telephone support from a coach. On PEI, the program represents an investment of $100,000 annually, funded from within Health PEI’s Mental Health and Addictions division. www.healthpei.ca/mentalhealth, www.strongestfamilies.com
