Vision Statement: Building Capacity of School Personnel to Promote Mental Health
School personnel and families will work together to create environments and interactions that will promote and support all students' mental health and well-being.
Building Capacity: What does this mean?
Building capacity is broader that traditional professional development geared toward individual learning – it involves shared learning and shared work among all relevant stakeholders. Relevant stakeholders in schools include just about everyone – principals, teachers, para-educators, related school personnel, bus drivers, volunteers ... and even students and families.
The information and resources shared in the tabs on the left have been developed to foster shared learning and shared work among interdisciplinary teams and families in order to embed mental health promotion strategies throughout the day.
Every Moment Counts 'success stories' of shared learning and shared work related to promoting children's mental health will be shared.
