KDE Hub Mental Health Promotion for Children and Youth (July 2020). Project Management Tool for Child and Youth Mental Health Promotion. Waterloo, Ontario: Knowledge Development and Exchange Hub, Renison University College, University of Waterloo.
This tool responds to findings from the KDE Hub needs assessment with projects funded through the Mental Health Promotion Innovation Fund (MHP-IF). As part of the needs assessment, MHP-IF projects shared their interests and learning needs with the Hub, and the Hub considered those along with information on project plans, including recent adaptations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hub’s analysis explored types of supports that would help to advance a vision for optimizing child and youth mental health promotion in Canada, and would be true to our core commitments.
The Project Management Tool is intended to be something that would meet each MHP-IF project where they are at, and offer some questions that might help guide adaptations and plans more generally. The Hub invites projects to use parts of the tool that are most relevant to them.
