An Introduction to Every Moment Counts: Occupational Therapy’s Distinct Value in Mental Health Promotion, Prevention, and Intervention with Children and Youth

Small moments can make a big difference in how children feel and function in school. Research confirms that positive interactions and experiences (e.g., enjoying lunch, having fun during recess) help children feel positive and connected to school. This webinar focuses on occupational therapy’s distinct value in mental health promotion, prevention, and intervention with children and youth in school settings. Emphasis is on helping youth participate in a range of meaningful occupations and interactions throughout the day to foster mental and physical health.

Every Moment Counts is a mental health promotion initiative developed to help all children/youth become mentally healthy in order to succeed in school, at home and in the community. Participants will learn about a multi-tiered public health approach to mental health involving promotion, prevention and intervention and be introduced to Every Moment Counts’ occupation-based programs: Comfortable Cafeteria, Refreshing Recess, Calm Moments Cards, and Making Leisure Matter. A brief overview of website resources will be provided as well as strategies for building capacity of school personnel to do this work.
