Goals of this resource
This resource is an invitation for schools and their partners to reflect on current practices, leverage current initiatives and consider how the promotion of mental health can be more effectively embedded in school and system policies, practices and services. As understanding about mental health, brain development, learning environments and school communities evolve, best practices will also change and evolve.
The goal of this resource is to bring together the learning from this work, as well as the latest Canadian research, and help build a shared understanding of how schools, community partners and government can better work together to support mental health. This collaborative effort
will ensure that every student in Alberta has the learning opportunities and supports they need to develop positive mental health, be an engaged and successful learner and reach their full potential.
