Stigma-Free Professional Development Day Sessions

Engaging and Informative

We offer engaging and informative Professional Development Day Sessions as part of our comprehensive Stigma-Free School Program. Our live sessions help educators create inclusive environments for students and get the most out of the Society’s no-cost Student Mental Health Toolkit.

These sessions welcome educators, school counsellors, and any school staff member interested in teaching students about mental health and stigma. Attendees gain tools to address mental health challenges and eliminate stigma within their school communities. Our team equips participants with strategies that can be immediately applied in the classroom, creating a supportive and Stigma-Free learning environment for all students. Browse our resources to start educating children and young people in your life on mental wellbeing and stigma.
