Working Together to Support Mental Health in Alberta Schools is a 2017 Government of Alberta resource to support processes for positive mental health planning in and with schools. The first part of this valuable resource seeks to foster common provincial understandings about 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 one hour webinar 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.
