  • Shared Leadership: The Pathway to Mental Health & Well-Being Conference – Feb. 10, 2017

    “Shared Leadership: The Pathway to Mental Health and Well-being” is the theme of the 2017 Safe Schools Manitoba conference. Student mental health and well-being are priorities for educators, but there is increasing recognition that schools alone cannot meet all the needs of students. A collaborative approach is needed.  The conference will bring together representatives from the K-12 and post-secondary systems, provincial education associations, government, regional health authorities, community agencies, business, and most importantly, students.

    The conference will be held on Friday, February 10, 2017 at the Victoria Inn Hotel and Convention Centre (1808 Wellington Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba).

    The conference program, with overviews of all keynote and breakout sessions, is now available online. Registration now open!
