This initiative aims to provide resources to address the topic of mental health in the classroom, with the overall objective of making mental health more accessible. Mental health is more than just an event. This website aims to:
Promote building safe classrooms to talk about mental health
Build the knowledge and skills needed
Provide Resources and Tools
The Accessible Mental Health Initiative (AMHI) was established January 2018 by a student within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen's University. As a teacher candidate with a mental illness, the topic of mental health was an aspect Emily wanted to focus on. After having difficulty locating resources about mental health, she decided to create her own website. Powered by students at Queen's University, this initiative hopes to enable teachers with the resources and tools to introduce mental health in the classroom.
