The annual BC Public Health Summer School is a learning event welcoming participants from a variety of fields and backgrounds who work directly or indirectly with public health in British Columbia.

This year's event is divided into two sessions, each over two-days:

June 23 and 24 – Supporting and Protecting Health: Promoting Mental Wellness and Addressing Psychoactive Substances aims to build awareness, understanding and skills for promoting and protecting positive well-being by addressing health challenges and using evidence-informed health promoting mechanisms and implementation strategies related to mental health and substance use.

June 25 and 26 – Strengthening Healthy and Sustainable Communities through Local Government Planning and Public Health Collaboration aims to increase understanding of the key features of healthy and sustainable communities; to increase understanding of the mutually supportive and collaborative roles and activities of local government (municipalities and regional districts) and public health professionals in supporting them and to provide inspiration and ideas for further collaborative action in BC.

On Thursday June 26th from 9:15 - 10:15am BC Healthy Communities will be participating as a guest presenter, speaking about PlanH and demonstrating the project as an example of a tool related to sustainable healthy communities.
