For the 2018–19 and 2019–20 school years, WellAhead will focus on its role as a partner for knowledge mobilization, focusing on school, provincial, and district leaders. We want to ensure that decision-makers across the education system have the information and evidence they need to develop and implement effective and sustainable approaches to promoting wellbeing. Our knowledge mobilization efforts will focus on the following:
Supporting leaders and decision-makers in their key role in creating the conditions for school communities to fully embrace wellbeing. Leaders need access to information, evidence, and ideas to develop and implement effective wellbeing approaches.
Focusing on school districts/jurisdictions as a key entry point for effective system-wide implementation of sustainable approaches to mental health and wellbeing in K-12 education.
Catalyzing support for teacher and staff wellbeing as an integral part of a whole-school, whole system approach to prioritizing wellbeing.
