Social Emotional Learning and Mental Health

Medicine Hat Catholic schools are committed to supporting the safety and mental well-being of our students. Mental health is a “state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her potential, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.” (World Health Organization)

Mental health is not simply the absence of mental illness. It is a sense of emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being that enables us to meet the opportunities and challenges of life with a sense of confidence and hope. 

MHCBE supports student mental health and well-being in a variety of ways including 

  • promoting and supporting positive mental health for all students 
  • reducing the stigma associated with mental illness 
  • intentionally building social-emotional skills and mental health literacy with students 
  • identifying and supporting students who may be experiencing mental health problems 
  • building pathways to care and support services in the community
