Mental illness most often begins in adolescence; yet the people who work with teenagers on a daily basis are often unprepared to recognize and understand mental illness. Teacher education programs rarely address mental health literacy, resulting in teacher graduates who are at a disadvantage when they enter the workforce. Teachmentalhealth.org was developed to address this need based on the results of a national scoping exercise and input from more than 30 educational institutions and organizations across Canada.
This online modular-based resource can be used as a self-guided course or in individual modules by those wishing to develop their mental health literacy.
