Socially & Emotionally Aware Kids

Young Lives Research | We examine and support youth wellbeing on a complex planet


Project

STATUS: Completed


Socially and Emotionally Aware Kids (SEAK) is a project of the Canadian Mental Health Association Nova Scotia Division (CMHA NS) funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) through the Innovation Strategy. 


Objectives


Currently in its third phase and with additional funding from two philanthropic foundations, SEAK is focused on the process of scaling-up Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in Atlantic Canada (including capacity-building, integration provincially/regionally and implementation of an SEL program in pilot schools).

The role of the research team at the YLRL is to (a) evaluate processes of scale-up, and (b) develop and deliver integrated knowledge translation (iKT) to multiple audiences in Atlantic Canada and beyond.
