When it comes to supporting child and youth mental wellness, improvements in mental health literacy can have a number of benefits including prevention, early recognition and intervention, and the reduction of stigma and discrimination.
The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre has a variety of resources and services available to help educators support youth mental wellness. The team is offering a series of free workshops for school districts in the northern, interior and island regions of BC.
Through this initiative, the team will work with each district to provide a customized information session for members of the school community, including an introduction to the following:
In 2016-2017, the team delivered workshops in seven school communities: SD22 (Vernon), SD5 (Cranbrook), SD54 (Smithers), SD61 (Victoria), SD 70 (Port Alberni), SD23 (Kelowna) and SD91 (Nechako Lakes). In 2017-2018, we are visiting nine school disctricts in the north, interior and island regions.
We are now scheduling workshops for the 2017-2018 school year. To learn more about this opportunity, please contact Charlene.King2@cw.bc.ca
