Building Soft Landings is the first session in Making Connections, a six-session informational series for parents, caregivers and adults who play supportive roles in the lives of a 2SLGBTQIA+ youth.
The goal of this series is to:
– Increase access to educational opportunities for parents and caregivers by sharing the knowledge of professionals and subject experts through the speaker series.
– Increase opportunities for connections across Nova Scotia by focusing on connecting caregivers in rural areas with one another to allow sharing of experiences and support.
Sessions are planned for October, November, December, January and February. The full schedule, including the topics and facilitators will be announced in September. Visit www.novascotia.cmha.ca for updates.
Building Soft Landings will be facilitated by Carmel Farahbakhsh, Executive Director of the Youth Project.
In this session, Farahbakhsh will discuss foundations of gender and sexuality 101 while also sharing stories, best practices, and affirming tools that can create spaces of care, celebration, and sustainable support networks for the 2SLGBQTIA+ youth in our lives as well as for the folks that love them.
This session is geared towards parents, caregivers, guardians, and/or mentors of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth navigating the realities of coming out, isolation, gaps in localized resources, and building community.
