About the Session


System leaders from Golden Hills School Division and Edmonton Catholic School Division will share stories of practice about how theWorking Together to Support Mental Health in Alberta Schools resource:

  • was used to identify and implement organizational actions supporting student mental health and wellness in their school authorities over the past two years
  • continues to frame their thinking around Mental Health supports during the Pandemic
  • will continue to be a lens for thinking as they plan for re-entry when that time comes


There will be time for focused conversations about how their approaches might support your own planning and implementation of remote mental health strategies. 


We will also explore mental health resources available on the ARPDC Supporting Learning At Home website.


Guest Speakers include:

  • Cheryl Shinkaruk, Edmonton Catholic Schools
  • Christina Hoover & Deb Nunziata, Golden Hills School Division
  • Bev Baker-Hofmann, Alberta Education
