    Notice. Talk. Act.® at School

    School Mental Health Education Program

    Our Notice. Talk. Act.® at School approach helps staff build relationships, Notice when a student might be showing signs of mental health and other distress, how to Talk to them to show care and concern, and Act when appropriate to connect the student to support services.

    Our newest public resources are available and regularly updated on our Free Resources page.

    Mental health concerns in students are real, may be painful and, if left untreated, can have serious, life changing consequences. Early recognition, intervention and treatment of mental health concerns make a positive and lasting difference in an adolescent's life.

    For more than 10 years the Typical or Troubled?® School Mental Health Education Program equipped teachers, coaches and school personnel with the knowledge needed to recognize the warning signs of mental health concerns and what course of action to take in addressing potential issues.

    From 2017 - 2019 we spent our time redeveloping our curriculum and delivery model, pilot testing the new Notice. Talk. Act.® at School program in 2019.

    The Notice. Talk. Act.® at School program trains educational staff to:
