Summer Institute


The Summer Institute is an annual event that brings together teachers, school counsellors, school support staff, school administrators, district staff, parents, students and school community partners.  At the Institute participants exchange knowledge and ideas about how to build school connectedness and promote student mental health and well-being.

This event is the result of an ongoing collaboration with the BC School Centred Mental Health Coalition. Since the first Institute took place in August 2010, over 1,200 school professionals from across the province have participated.
