Mental Health Matters Infographic: Equitable School Practices to Support Youth Mental Health
June 28, 2023

Fostering inclusivity in our schools means recognizing, valuing, and celebrating the unique cultural, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds that each student brings to the classroom. This is a foundational principle to supporting the delivery of an anti-racist curriculum that illuminates the value and importance of racial equality and justice and highlights the richness and uniqueness of diverse histories.


Educators can encourage critical thinking and nurture empathy by challenging stereotypes and expanding the perspectives of their students. Additionally, accessibility to quality education for all students, irrespective of their race, ethnicity, or socio-economic status, is vital for the growth and success of both individual students and the larger society. It requires equipping underrepresented students with adequate resources and support.
