Alumni Western is pleased to partner with the Strangway Community Centre to present Children don't come with a manual: Exploring children's mental health.

Recent studies indicated 20 percent of children aged 4-17 struggle with a clinically diagnosable mental health disorder. That translates to more than 800,000 Canadian children who experience health concerns that impair their ability to function well at home, school and in the community.

Western University's Vicki Schwean, Dean of the Faculty of Education, will explore the crucial role parents and educators can play in ensuring the needs of these children are met.

Date:       Thursday, June 20, 2013
Time:       4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Location: Strangway Community Centre, 260 East Street North, Sarnia, ON
