We all work with clients who test our capacity to connect with them, feel compassionate, and act competently. Clients may present as relentlessly hopeless, passive, and incapable.

Mental Health Care for Canadian Children and Youth: The Role of School Psychologists

This Position Paper has been developed by the Canadian Psychological Association

Mental health and wellbeing which include the range of social, emotional, intellectual and behavioural functions upon which we all rely day to day, are critical to the success of people and the places in which they live, work, learn, and play. This is especially true for children, for whom mental health services and supports bring the biggest return on investment. School psychologists play an essential role in the mental and cognitive health and wellbeing of students in school and non-school settings, particularly, as we continue to live with the impacts of far-reaching societal events, like the COVID-19 global pandemic.
