Self-Regulation, Mental Health and Creating a Culture of Safety

with Dr. Susan Hopkins, executive director, The Mehrit Centre
Brought to you by Dufferin County Children's Services

Many of today’s children are dealing with stress. This engagement will focus on Self-Regulation and the environment. Self-Reg provides a new and useful lens for understanding, detecting and reducing the stressors which can contribute to or exacerbate mental health concerns. Self-Regulation is for everyone, calming their " survival brains" and promoting the mental well-being for all.
