Mental Health Capacity Building Program

The BRSD Mental Health Capacity Building (MHCB) Program is a universal promotion, prevention and early intervention addictions and mental health program targeted at supporting child and youth mental health. Using BRSD schools as hubs, the BRSD MHCB Program provides year round programming through classroom and community programs, presentations, workshops and events, to build the capacity of children, youth and families to have good mental health. MHCB Wellness Coaches are a pathway to referral for students and caregivers requiring additional support. They collaborate with school teams and the FSLW program to support healthy school environments and wellness strategies, and with community partners to address gaps in service and common trends related to student mental health.
