Our Past Work
Since 2015, WellAhead has supported innovative work across Canada to develop, scale and learn about effective approaches to integrating wellbeing into K-12 education. Here are some examples of our past work by jurisdiction.
Supporting six school districts in the 2015–2016 and 2016-2017 school years to co-design, prototype and scale everyday practices to support wellbeing.
Partnering with Healthy Schools BC on two projects: the Mental Wellbeing Coaching Initiative, which offers coaching support to BC school districts, and a user-centred design process that engaged teachers in informing physical and health education resources to support BC's new curriculum.
Helping convene K-12 education sector leaders, including ministries, leading non-profits and leaders of the professional associations to help discuss ways to advance the integration of wellbeing in schools, and participating in various provincial networks and collaboratives.
Supporting School Mental Health ASSIST to deepen their learning and evaluation approach, communicate out across Ontario and Canada, and incorporate everyday practices into all elementary school.
Hosting national gatherings that bring together key thought leaders and influencers to discuss a vision for wellbeing in schools.
Mobilizing transferable knowledge from one province/territory to another.
