The HIGH FIVE® Strengthening Children’s Mental Health (SCMH) program  is a one-day in-person training for youth leaders, developed in collaboration with Ontario’s Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). The program is intended for municipal staff and supervisors offering children’s programs to be better informed about providing early intervention for children’s mental health. 

Target Audience: HIGH FIVE® SCMH is an early identification awareness and response program that will educate recreation staff and supervisors on how to promote mental wellness in programs, build resiliency in children, recognize when children may be struggling with mental health challenges and how to support children and their families should they need assistance.

Learner Outcomes:

- Participants will learn key concepts and factors that affect children’s mental health including the impact of stress and environment on a child’s ability to cope.

- Tools and suggested activities to use with staff to help improve their understanding and interactions with children who face challenges in their programs.
