School Mental Health Grants
For the 2019 school year, the SPCCH is reviewing our current School-Based Mental Health Grants Program.
Over the past 5 years, we have funded 52 schools within Hamilton for a total of $52,000 to advance mental health awareness, mental health literacy, foster help seeking and help build resilience.
There have been so many remarkable projects including: Health Action Teams, Peer Support Programs, Cultural Fairs, Mental Health Literacy Programs, Art Therapy Projects, Awareness Videos, etc.
This year we are evaluating the work that has been accomplished and are partnering with the Offord Centre for Child Studies to help advance a Social Emotional Skills Based Program to be tested in a few interested schools.
We are also pleased to be providing one time support to both school boards for their ASIST training initiatives.
