This website is dedicated to informing and supporting educators to ensure an inclusive classroom environment for all learners. Through this website, our goals are to:
- Define depression
- Examine symptoms and who is at risk of depression
- Introduce possible implications in the classroom
- Examine and promote effective teaching strategies for individuals with depression
- Provide sample activities to honour diversity within the classroom (K-3; 4-6; Junior High School; Senior High School)
The above video was funded by the Alberta Teachers Association in conjunction with the Canadian Mental Health Association and Global. Can We Talk is a campaign that was launched in October 2012 asking youth to sign declaration supporting change in the way we talk about mental health and support those living with mental illness.
