Edmonton Catholic Schools Mental Health Strategic Plan: School Conversation Guides
How can your school implement a whole-school approach to create a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that supports the positive mental health of students? A whole-school approach recognizes that all aspects of the school community impact students’ mental health and well-being, and that learning and mental health are inextricably linked. Through a strength-based approach, schools can move their focus from the prevention of specific problems to a more positive, holistic view of child and youth development.
The Conversation Guides / Videos will allow you and your school staff the opportunity to further a conversation around how to support student mental health through a comprehensive, strengths based approach.
