VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province has announced that it will be providing more funding for enhanced mental health programs to support a safe return to school.

According to the Government, funds will be immediately released for school-based wellness programs and supports by $2 million, topping up the $8.8-million investment over three years that was announced last September.

The Province says this means that for the 2020-21 school year, school districts and independent school authorities will receive a total of $3.75 million to promote mental wellness and provide additional supports for students, families and educators as they work together to get through this challenging time.
