Overview of the PDSB Mental Health and Well-being Strategy: Phase 3 Planning


The 2023-2026 Mental Health Strategy and Year 1 Action Plan will be launched in time for the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Five goals were identified for the first three years of the strategy; the PDSB reviewed the data collected from advisory groups and created a draft strategy with 3-5 priorities listed. The draft strategy will then be reviewed and possibly narrowed down to 3 priorities. Once it is completed and published, the core leadership team will begin work on the Year 1 Action Plan for implementation.
