Take the guesswork out of mental health promotion and literacy planning for your classroom.

  • Have confidence that your approach is aligned with the Ontario curriculum, based on the latest mental health evidence and is identity-affirming and culturally responsive.
  • Foster a supportive and inclusive learning environment where students feel empowered to care for their mental health and support their peers.
  • Benefit from the spillover effect—practising mental health strategies with students can support your mental health too.

The School Mental Health Ontario Wayfinder provides a clear framework for mental health learning in the classroom.

Here’s what’s included:

  • a digital guide of lessons and activities with easy-to-follow instructions
  • ready-to-use communication materials to foster home-school connections
