TARGET AUDIENCE: SCHOOL AND JURISDICTIONAL LEADERS, COMMUNITY PARTNERS WHO WORK IN SCHOOL SYSTEMS TO SUPPORT STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Working Together to Support Mental Health in Alberta Schools is a 2017 Government of Alberta resource to support positive mental health planning for school communities. Designed to embrace collaboration and shared responsibility, the resource provides information to lay a shared foundation for all professionals who work in schools with children, youth, and families. 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 one hour webinar will highlight core concepts from the resource, and introduce the Key Conditions planning and implementation tool.
This learing opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
