Share2Care

Are you or your school championing positive mental health among students and school staff?

Share2Care

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 mental health practices that are making positive impacts on students, school staff, or both.

With 224 applications received from across Canada during our 2018 campaign, the responsiveness to supporting mental health in Canadian schools has been outstanding.

It is with great excitement and gratitude to announce our 2018 Share2Care campaign recipients and their promising practices. In total, five schools will each receive $2000 in funding to further support their identified mental health promising practices. Here are our recipient schools for 2018.

The population they are serving are considered to be "at risk" youth and approximately 65% are First Nation ancestry. Many live in extreme poverty. In order to attend their school, students must have exhausted all the mainstream school supports, be in danger of dropping out, and be in need of extensive supports including targeted mental health initiatives. Over half of the students have a clinical mental health diagnosis and many more students remain undiagnosed.

NS%20school%20FINAL.jpg

 

New Germany Rural High School is a small school housing 330 students in grades 7-12. One in five students in the county lives in poverty and comes to school without proper nourishment or clothing. The impact of this on children's education is immeasurable and it further disadvantages families creating a cycle of health, mental health, and financial hardships in the community.
