The Department of Education is looking for your input
on their work developing a Comprehensive Mental Health and Wellness approach in Yukon schools.
What does comprehensive mental health mean to you?
What mental health services does your school provide?
What mental health services should be provided in schools and why?
What are the gaps or barriers preventing the delivery of these services?
How can well-being be addressed from a First Nations traditional perspective?
As we talk about mental health, what is the most important thing to you that you want to be captured and considered in the discussion?
Connect with your school council
to provide your feedback by May 15.
The Department of Education is working on several initiatives
that will affect schools in Yukon, including:
Safe and Caring Schools Policy,
Student Outcomes Strategy,
and Ready to Learn Schools.
