Mental Health is one of the six health topics a school community may identify as their priority health topic for Ophea’s Healthy Schools Certification.
Schools can select a variety of activities to support positive mental health amongst students, staff, and the broader school community.
For sample activities relating to Mental Health (with considerations on how to implement within a COVID-19 context), review our COVID-19 Support Resources, H&PE At Home, as well as our Ideas for Action (Mental Health) resource.
To access additional tools (lesson plans, supplements, activities) to support mental health, visit our Teaching Tools website.
