E-Mental Health

Our School Division has access to an innovative tool called Innowell (sometimes referred to as e-Mental Health). Innowell is available to us through a partnership with Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary called the e-Mental Health for Youth & Young Adults research project.

Innowell helps us to collaborate with clients to:
- understand what is important to them
- set goals
- track how they are doing over time
- help them take an active role in their mental wellbeing
- connect them with care options that are right for them, such as apps, e-tools, and local

Watch this video for more information on the platform, or reach out to our Student Advocacy Counsellor if you are interested in this service for your child.

Pathway of Hope 

NLPS families will soon have additional help to navigate and access mental health services for youth thanks to a Mental Health in Schools grant from Alberta Education.

In partnership with the Bonnyville Primary Care Network (PCN), the almost $1 million grant will be used to hire a mental health navigator, a mental health nurse and two psychologists who will work with schools and families to ensure students receive mental health services.
