As a mental health professional working within the school system, you help to make sure students can learn to the best of their abilities, and can help those struggling with a mental health problem with early identification and intervention services.
You are a key part of the circle of support for students with mental health needs in your school board. You’re also part of a community of practice of SMH professionals across Ontario with specialized skills related to early identification, prevention, intervention and crisis support services.
SMH professionals serve students when they are most in need, but are often the last to receive learning and training as part of their role. We want to change that. Explore our learning topics to deepen your knowledge.
