Developed by ROCK Reach Out Centre for Kids, rockonlearn.ca is a new Learning Management System (LMS) that provides online learning tools geared to enhance knowledge and provide opportunities for training in the non-profit, mental health and community service sector.

These E-learning tools offer affordable, creative and innovative E-learning modules for parents/caregivers, clients/patients, partner organizations, businesses, individuals and community agencies. This online resource will provide information, opportunities for discussion and other tools to advance skills for mental health providers and offer other topics of interest in our community.
