“….This web resource provides the health and social service provider (“practitioner”) with current evidence-based approaches in the application of mental health promotion concepts and principles for children and youth. It is envisioned that these guidelines will support both the inclusion and the sustainability of mental health promotion concepts.
This resource is intended to support practitioners in incorporating best practice approaches to mental health promotion interventions directed toward children (7–12 years of age) and youth (13–19 years of age).
This resource includes:
· Guidelines: Identifies the 10 best practice guidelines for mental health promotion interventions with children and youth.
· Theory: Provides practitioners with the context for mental health promotion through definitions and underlying concepts, with a focus on promoting resilience.
· Resources: Provides a worksheet (MS Word doc) that can be used by practitioners to plan and implement mental health promotion initiatives, a sample worksheet (PDF) showing how it has been used in a mental health promotion initiative and a glossary of words commonly used in mental health promotion.
