Share2Care is a mental health activation initiative gathering promising practices from across the country to share and inspire others to take action in their class and/or school community. As part of the PHE Canada Teach Resiliency program, Share2Care aims to recognize and share unique, innovative, and promising school mental health programs and initiatives that are making positive impacts on students, school staff, and the entire school community.
2019 marked the 2nd consecutive year of the Share2Care campaign, and saw school champions from across the country share 316 mental health initiatives supporting teacher and/or student mental health - 92 more than the previous year.
After careful and thoughtful consideration and review, five schools were selected as the 2019 Share2Care recipients. They are the following:
- F.H. Collins Secondary School - Whitehorse, YT
- Juniper School - Thompson, MB
- Robert H. Lagerquist Sr. Public School - Brampton, ON
- Mount Stewart Consolidated School - Mount Stewart, PEI
- Shambhala School - Halifax, NS
As a result of the Share2Care campaign, each of the above recognized schools will receive $5,000 to continue advancing their promising practice to further support the mental health of teachers and students in their school community. While we are not able to financially support every initiative, we recognize and applaud each champion for their efforts to support the mental health and wellbeing of their students and school staff. The promising practices of these five schools will be featured on teachresiliency.ca with many of the other great initiatives to be added in the weeks to come - inspiring and supporting others to activate their own mental health initiative.
