"Go To Educator" Mental Health Literacy Toolkit Online Workshop February 2022.    

 As part of our strategic plan priority to ‘Build a Culture of Learning and Wellness’, we are looking at providing all staff with the opportunity to engage in  professional learning related to Mental Health Literacy.

Go-To Educator/ Mental Health Toolkit

In every school, there are staff with whom students naturally form good relationships, go to for help, and feel comfortable talking to about their problems.  And there are also people who may notice things about a student that others may have missed.   This could be teachers, educational assistants, youth care workers, administrators, custodians, admin assistants, bus drivers, maintenance, etc.  All of you are Go-To Educators.  

The “Go-To Educator/ Mental Health Toolkit professional learning teaches all staff to understand the basics of mental health and mental illness and to support or refer someone who is experiencing a mental health challenge. This can make a critical difference for our students.  It can also make a critical difference for you or someone you care about. 

Research shows that participants in the Go-To educator/ Mental Health Toolkit training also report benefits of this training transferring to their personal lives for themselves and those they care about.  

In this training, participants will learn:  

  • How to foster and maintain good mental health  
  • About mental disorders and their treatments  
  • How to decrease stigma  
  • How to seek help effectively and utilize referral pathways to health care services  
  • The foundational knowledge necessary to effectively teach about mental health literacy in schools
