Professional learning: Supporting student mental health

As a compliment to the MH LIT – Mental Health in Action for School Administrators course, we have partnered with our Principal Associations; The Catholic Principals’ Leadership Development | Ontario, Leadership en action and Principal Association Projects, the service partners for Catholic Principals’ Council | Ontario (CPCO), L’Association des directions et directions adjointes des écoles franco-ontariennes (ADFO) and Ontario Principals’ Council to develop resources that further support principals and vice-principals in supporting student mental health.

These resources, along with the course modules will support principals and vice-principals as they  

  • deepen their understanding of student mental health 
  • provide practical strategies 
  • support the enhancement of classroom culture 
  • align their work with the OCT advisory related to student mental health 
  • understand links between mental health and updated curriculum documents including Health and Physical Education and Mathematics and 
  • build positive habits that create the foundation for long-lasting mental health and well-being. 

You can access these resources through our partner associations:
