About us

Our program works to promote positive mental health in children, youth, and families, with a focus on those living in rural and remote communities.

We have 36 sites across the province, plus 18 grant-funded programs that help to extend our reach. Each site is locally planned in partnership with school authorities, schools, local agencies and service providers, and families.

Our project staff may be able to:

  • Offer training, programs and resources to help school staff improve their knowledge and skills in:
    • Universal mental health promotion and prevention strategies
    • Self-regulation and self-care techniques
    • Physical and psychological safety
    • Positive community norms
  • Support school and community mental health events, awareness campaigns, mentorship programs, and local networks
  • Help school staff to notice signs of mental health or addiction issues in students, and provide screening
  • Collaborate with local service providers to make sure that students and families have access to early intervention and treatment, and get the most out of what’s available locally
