Good mental health is something we all want for ourselves, our friends, our family and others in our community. Just like we care for our physical health, there are things we need to do to stay mentally healthy.

Your Role

A group of high school students are sitting in a row together outside. They appear to be listening to someone tell a story. They're smiling and launghing.

There are a number of things you can contribute when it comes to mental health at school. It begins with caring for your own mental health, and knowing your role in supporting others.

It’s good to be curious about your mental health. Unfortunately, not everything you read or hear on this topic is true, or helpful. We are assembling information that students have asked for – like about self-care and staying well, signs of common mental health problems, how and where to ask for help, and how to help a friend.

Take Action

Through #HearNowON, secondary students from across the province told us how they want to get involved. We have introduced a student reference group from across the province to help to turn ideas into action. Students are helping to shape the conversation about mental health at school!
