Organize Virtual Wellness Clubs

A detailed description of the practice

Organize virtual clubs and sessions that focus specifically on promoting mental health and wellness that students can regularly participate in.

This practice:

is cost-efficient to put in place
is effective in promoting health and wellness among students
is well received by most students
is helping build and maintain a healthy school culture
reaches most students and families within a school
does not require additional funding
is sustainable over time given staff turnover, costs, training, etc.
is easily integrated into the curriculum (Program of Studies)

But this practice:

is not easy and quick to implement
is not well received by teachers and school staff
does not reach the students and families who need it most
requires extensive planning
requires additional staff time
requires support or partnerships from outside the school
