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.
2020 marked the 3rd consecutive year of the Share2Care campaign, and saw school champions from across the country share 199 mental health initiatives supporting teacher and/or student mental health.
After careful and thoughtful consideration and review, seven schools were selected as the 2020 Share2Care recipients. They are the following:
- Wellington Catholic District School Board - Guelph, ON
- Gordon Bell High School - Winnipeg, MB
- Dr. KA Clark School - Fort McMurray, AB
- Leaf Rapids Education Center - Leaf Rapids, MB
- Beach Cove Elementary - Portugal Cove, NL
- Whitehorse Individual Learning Center - Whitehorse, YT
- Miramichi Valley High School - Miramichi, NB
As a result of the Share2Care campaign, each of the above recognized schools will receive $2,000 to continue advancing their promising practice to further support the mental health of teachers and students in their school community. The promising practices of these seven 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.
While we are not able to support every program, everyone deserves to be recognized. For a list of all schools that joined the campaign, please visit here.
