Mind Check

Author(s): Ministry of Children and Family Development, Fraser Health, BC Mental Health & Addictions Services, BC Children's Hospital Foundation, RBC Children's Mental Health Project

Date: January, 2012

Summary

Mindcheck.ca assists young people to better understand distress they are experiencing and to link them to sources of help that will enable them to learn skills and strategies to manage these problems. Being able to recognize symptoms and deal with them early in life increases the chances of better long-term outcomes and positive mental health across the lifespan.

Mental health challenges and substance use problems often start in adolescence and the young adult years. Research tells us that intervening early can prevent problems from worsening to the point where professional help is needed. Mental health disorders seldom appear in full bloom. They are usually preceded by signs of emotional distress and difficulties in day-to-day activities.

Though not specifically designed for newcomer children, this site may still help older newcomer children identify their mental health needs and connect them with support.

Communicating with Children

Author(s): UNICEF

Date: January, 2012

Summary

Communicating with Children is a resource pack that facilitates the process of learning about the critical importance of communication that is age- appropriate and child-friendly, holistic, positive, strengths-based and inclusive. Effective communication is a two-way process for sharing ideas and knowledge that involves understanding people: their needs, skills, beliefs, values, societies and cultures. 

Messages that include children's needs, perspectives and points of view can make a difference in thier development: behaviourally (imitating sharing or imitating aggression), socially (making friends or bullying their classmates in school or on the internet); cognitively (learning school preparedness skills or developing short attention spans) and even physically (learning balanced nutrition or developing bad eating habits).

The Early Development Instrument (EDI) in British Columbia: Documenting Impact and Action in Schools, Communities and Early Childhood Development

Author(s): Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP), Candian Council on Learning (CCL), British Columbia School Trustees Association (BCSTA)

Date: January, 2012

Summary

Since the Early Development Instrument (EDI) was implemented in British Columbia in 2001, many early learning initiatives have been undertaken by school districts, government and communities. This study addresses the question of whether targeted communitybased initiatives can reduce vulnerabilities, as identified by the EDI, prior to school entry. The study investigates neighbourhoods and/or communities in 10 school districts where EDI results have identified reduced vulnerabilities. These school districts applied to be part of the study, as each believed that newly-implemented ECD programs were responsible for the improved EDI results. The study uses narrative to document promising program practices and their perceived impact on families, child development and social issues; it provides evidence of effective practice through participatory and reflective methodologies resulting in new insights for policy makers in school districts and communities.
