The Quaich Inc. is proud to announce that its contract with the Canadian Mental Health’s SEAK Project has been expanded.

The project expansion will involve a process of reviewing the literature, an environmental scan, and consultation with national and international experts as well as policy influencers in Atlantic Canada to inform the creation of a model of scaling up best practices in mental health promotion policy. It is anticipated that this innovative model will be tested in Atlantic Canada and could then be disseminated nationally and internationally.

SEAK (Socially and Emotionally Aware Kids) is a four year project that will evaluate the real world implementation of a proven mental health promotion curriculum for elementary school-age children called Promoting Alternative THinking Strategies (PATHS). The SEAK Project is an initiative of the Canadian Mental Health Association - Nova Scotia Division, funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
