Mental Health Through Compassionate Systems
with Jovo Bikic and Shannon Derinzy, SD42
We all recognize the importance of our mental health, particularly during these challenging times. In our school district, both staff and students have reported a decline in well-being. During this session, we will share ideas and facilitate discussions on how we might embed compassionate systems in our mental health work in order to ensure that our mental health work and our compassionate systems work is integrated in everything we do. We will use the mandala framework from the compassionate systems toolkit to explore how districts can create systems change or build on the work that has already been done. We will also provide an analysis of how we aligned our District Mental Health Strategy with the Provincial Mental Health in Schools Strategy within the context of compassionate systems.
Friday, January 21st, from 8:00 - 9:00am via Zoom. Link will be sent out to registrants prior to the session.
