Positive Mental Health Toolkit

The Pan-Canadian Joint Consortium for School Health’s Positive Mental Health Toolkit is designed to promote positive practices and perspectives within the school environment, and to provide a proactive approach to enhancing student engagement and positive behaviour supports.

Positive Behavioural Intervention and Supports (PBIS)

PBIS describes school-based systems of support that provide strategies for supporting positive student behaviours to create healthy school environments.

Response to Intervention

The three-tiered Response to Intervention (RTI) model adapts intervention strategies according to students’ level of need:

  • Tier 1 involves instructional approaches and interventions that are universal and accessible to all students in the classroom.
  • Tier 2 interventions are provided for small groups of students in need of additional support, and can be provided in collaboration with support staff.
  • Tier 3 provides longer, more intense interventions for individual students, supported by strong family and student engagement.
