Provincial Outreach & Regional Tour 2022-2023

Mental Health in Schools: The imperative of care with Jamie Morris and Michelle Hussey – Sessions complete for 2022/23

Thank you to the hundreds of people who attended one of the 8 Provincial Outreach sessions held this year!

FISA is thrilled to once again offer in-person Pro-D opportunities to the independent school sector. Join us to explore how to center school mental health education and supports around the concept of “care” without overburdening staff. As we move forward into the 2022/23 school year, working together to support students, colleagues, and ourselves has never been more important for the well-being of our school communities. In this interactive and collaborative session, attendees will learn practical strategies and receive useful resources that will deepen their competency and confidence in: —

  • Identifying common mental health needs in schools
  • Defining and maintaining boundaries
  • Accessing professional assistance appropriately
  • Exploring the BC Mental Health in Schools Strategy
    Capacity Building
    Practice Compassionate Systems Leadership
