What We Do

What We Do

Facilitate programs in the classroom and school:

  • ​Planned in collaboration with the teacher and the principal

  • Focuses on mental health

  • Classroom based (not individual)

  • Designed to build a teacher's capacity, therefore the teacher must be present during the program

  • Once a program has been completed, BEST will not facilitate it for a second time with the same teacher

Parent Information Sessions:

  • These are done periodically throughout the school year depending upon the Wellness Coach's time availability in their community.

Community:

  • Provide information and guidance about mental health programs with local youth agencies and groups

  • Agency (who work with youth) staff training on mental health ie: self-regulation

  • Mental Health Information sharing table at local events

 

Educators:

  • Mental Wellness presentations for staff

  • Presentations on a variety of mental health topics
