This model shows the various components of mental health and well-being in school communities. It was collaboratively developed by a working group of the BC School Centred Mental Health Coalition, which includes partners from health, education, government and school communities across BC. The model can be used to situate and contextualize efforts to support mental health and well-being and show how they fit together to support all students. It can be used as a tool to identify different efforts and practices currently in place while also looking at the bigger picture.
