Team for Success

What is the Team for Success?

The Team for Success is one of thirty eight Provincial projects that comprise the Mental Health Capacity Building in Schools Initiative (MHCB) which is led by Alberta Health Services in collaboration with Alberta Education, and funded through grants from Alberta Health and Wellness.

The purpose of the initiative is to establish projects that provide the staffing and support required to implement an integrated, school-based community mental health promotion, prevention, and, early intervention program. The projects are locally planned, coordinated and implemented in partnership with school jurisdictions, parents, community agencies, and other regional service providers.
