1 Copyright Notice This document is the property of Alberta Health Services (AHS). On April 1, 2009, AHS brought together 12 formerly separate health entities in the province: nine geographically based health authorities (Chinook Health, Palliser Health Region, Calgary Health Region, David Thompson Health Region, East Central Health, Capital Health, Aspen Regional Health, Peace Country Health and Northern Lights Health Region) and three provincial entities working specifically in the areas of mental health (Alberta Mental Health Board), addiction (Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission) and cancer (Alberta Cancer Board).

2 Mental Health Capacity Building for Children, Youth and Families in Schools Background The Mental Health Capacity Building (MHCB) for Children, Youth and Families in Schools is a unique initiative in that mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention services are integrated into and provided in a school-based setting. There are currently thirty-one project sites implemented across Alberta with plans to add an additional nine sites in the upcoming school year. The purpose of the MHCB Initiative is to provide the staffing and support structures required to implement an integrated, school-based community mental health promotion and prevention program. The thirty-one sites address the capacity building and risk reduction service components in selected at-risk communities specifically targeted to children ages 0 19 years and their families. The aim is to increase coping, knowledge and skills of children and youth to enable them to make better choices and adopt behaviours to self protect their physical and mental health at as early an age as possible. Project sites also reach out to parents and other family members to assist them in their skill and capacity to create an environment conducive to mental wellness. Support and knowledge is also provided to school staff and other community service providers to build their capacity to support children and families. Provincial Outcomes An external, independent evaluator has been contracted to evaluate all thirty-one sites. The following outcomes are expected and measured for all sites: Short-term outcomes: Enhanced assessment and counseling capacity at the school site. Increase provision of coordinated mental health services Increased awareness of available mental health services by target population. Target population reports easier access to mental and physical health services. Wait time for children and youth to access services is reduced. Intermediate-term outcomes: Target population requiring mental health services are referred/access services. Increased capacity to provide mental health services to target population. Target population has increased awareness of healthy behaviours. Families and schools have the knowledge and awareness to create environments to support mental health. Long-term outcome: Children and youth demonstrate increased healthy behaviours leading to greater mental health. MHCB Project Summaries March 2010 Page 1 of 14

3 Mental Health Capacity Building for Children, Youth and Families in Schools Project Summaries Zone 5 - North Central Métis Settlements: Kimiyo-ayananaw (When We are Healthy) Our number one focus is providing counseling and support for individuals or groups of students and families in some of the following areas: Preventative/Proactive programming for individuals or groups of students such as healthy living, positive life choices, and afterschool clubs. We are hoping to accomplish this by linking students and families with appropriate support agencies and service providers in the community. Our second focus is to provide training for school staff in the area of mental health promotion, prevention and awareness of mental health issues. Our team consists of a project coordinator and three success coaches who work with three schools; Grouard, Peavine, and Gift Lake School where our main office is also located.

Predominately Aboriginal residents, this community has two First Nations, the Mikisew Cree and Athabasca Chipewyan, and a Métis Local. This is also a very isolated community with only access by air or water in the summer months and a winter ice road available for about three months. By establishing the Helping Hands to Success project in the community with the Athabasca Delta Community School, partners in this project hope to provide mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention services to students from Kindergarten through Grade 12 as well as to improve recreational activities in the community. The project has a coordinator, two success coaches, a mental health therapist and a public health/wellness coordinator that will implement strategies with students, parents, school and other service providers.
