This face-to-face professional learning experience increases knowledge and understanding of mental health and mental disorders while preparing educators to implement the Guide in their classroom. Modules are reviewed focusing on the underlining concepts and understanding required to confidently deliver the materials to students.

The learning session can be delivered in one day by a Guide or Core Trainer. Trainers build capacity in their jurisdictions (e.g. regions, boards, districts) for ongoing professional learning. They are trained either over a two-day period as Guide Trainers, or a three-day period as Core Trainers (see below for details).

Some of the many benefits of Mental Health & High School Curriculum Guide Professional Learning include:
