Our Story Our Direction

Fostering mentally thriving school communities through quick starts and deep dives into school & student health

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable… less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.” 

Fred Rogers


In 2013, MORE: Mental Health Online Resources for Educators was launched, offering free, online courses on mental health and substance use to educators and school staff working with early childhood services to Grade 9 students in Southern Alberta. 

We have since expanded to work with all Albertan educators, school staff, and administrators working with K-12 students.

MORE is a program in Mental Health & Substance Use Collaborative Initiatives (MHSUCI), which is a Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Psychiatry Program (CAAMHPP) within Alberta Health Services (AHS).
MHSUCI offers a variety of resources and services to support and build capacity in the area of child and adolescent mental health. We are dedicated to supporting the development of mental health literacy for educators and other school system staff, primary care providers, and the general public.


MORE’s objective is to increase skills and confidence within schools to more effectively address the mental health and wellness needs of their students.

Our courses are : 

  • Free
  • Available online
  • Designed for teachers, administrators, and any other school staff working with K-12 students
  • Address current child and adolescent addiction and mental health issues
  • Expert presenters from education, psychiatry, psychology, social work, and more.
