Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, the University of Toronto and Toronto Public Health. (2014). Best practice guidelines for mental health promotion programs: Children (7–12) & youth (13-19). Toronto, ON: Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
An excellent primer that offers a comprehensive set of foundational definitions and theories as well as best practice intervention guidelines including outcome and process indicators and illustrative examples.
Written with child and youth mental health practitioners in mind, the document is quite long (110 pages) but user friendly due to clear language and organization. It contains practical checklists and worksheets that can be used to help incorporate evidence-based practices into new or existing programs.
