Our second annual Advancing Post Traumatic Growth Event was again an overwhelming success. Our keynote speaker, The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell – Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, set the tone for the Event recounting how everyone plays a role in ensuring mental wellness within our organizations. Our expert presenters, partnered with our high quality of trainers and educational workshops continued throughout the Event demonstrating the need for collaboration and knowledge. The participants were enthusiastic and ready to learn and collaborate. The location of our venue at Horseshoe Resort in Oro-Medonte, Ontario was a simple addition that created a sense of harmony.

The Event included a variety of workshops from professionals including Dr. Ian Shulman, Wendy Lund, Joddie Walker, and Dr. Christina Harrington.
