Schools can provide a safe and supportive environment for building life-skills, resilience and a strong sense of connectedness. Fostering healthy relationships among peers, school staff and parents is critical
to a young person’s overall experience of school and their social, emotional and cognitive development.
A comprehensive and integrated approach to mental health promotion in schools requires initiatives and supports for young people, teachers, parents and guardians and school leadership teams.
A key component of the success of One Good School™, is a commitment to adopting a whole-school approach to promoting and supporting youth mental health and wellbeing.
