Beginning the Journey of Supporting Student Mental Health

Beginning the Journey of Supporting Student Mental Health

Whether you are a new or an experienced administrator, you may be wondering, “Where do I start?” or, “Who can I reach out to in supporting student mental health and well-being at my school?” This podcast focuses on the journeys of two practising principals sharing their perspectives in how they have worked closely with their mental health leads in creating a mentally healthy school.

Learn how your mental health lead can support you in school well-being goals as part of your school improvement plan or which School Mental Health Ontario (SMH-ON) resources are best suited to your school’s needs. Learn about how these school leaders have intentionally used SMH-ON resources such as the Reflection Tool or practical classroom ready resources to build student mental health. You will leave the podcast with a sense of “I can do this and I am not alone. We can do this together in a team approach. I have the support of my school mental health lead and many SMH-ON resources.”
