Every Moment Counts


Every Moment Counts is a mental health promotion initiative developed to help all children and youth become emotionally healthy in order to succeed in school, at home and in the community.  Funded by OEC/ODE (2012-15), the project goals include: 1) building capacity of all school personnel to learn how to promote children’s mental health using embedded strategies; 2) implementation and evaluation of school-wide programs developed to promote mental health throughout the day (classroom, cafeteria, recess); and 3) dissemination of model programs and resources via website and other social media (Facebook, Pinterest).  The website,, is due to launch by August 1, 2014.  All materials will be free and downloadable.
