Centring Black, Indigenous and Marginalized Perspectives in Mental Health Promotion at School: Examining and Decentring whiteness

Decentring whiteness and recentring Black and Indigenous perspectives are fundamental to identity-affirming school mental health. This resource is designed to help school boards engage in practices to centre Black, Indigenous and marginalized perspectives so every student can access learning environments, curricula and services that are affirming, supportive and meaningful.
