About this learning opportunity

Working Together to Support Mental Health in Alberta Schools is a 2017 Government of Alberta resource to support processes for mental health planning in and with schools. The first part of this valuable resource seeks to foster common provincial understandings about supporting positive mental health in schools and the role of education in collaborative work with school and community partners to support positive mental health cultures in schools. The Key Conditions planning and implementation tool that comprises the second part of this resource supports school authorities in considering local needs, available resources, and work already underway in the district as they work collaboratively with their partners to design a continuum of supports for all learners.

This 90-minute session will be a guided tour which will highlight core concepts from the resource, and introduce the Key Conditions planning and implementation tool. An overview of how to use the Key Conditions planning and implementation tool will be provided. You will be provided time and space to work through the resource at your own pace, and collaborate on future next steps for the resource back in your own districts.

To make the most of your time, you may wish to attend the Supporting High School Completion: A Tool Kit for Success session being offered before this, which will be comprised of 4 parts to introduce key sections of the resource through questions for discussion. 

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
