We will demonstrate how evidence-based mental health literacy and early identification approaches have improve the understanding of mental health and mental disorders, decreased stigma, enhanced help-seeking efficacy, and improved the quality of referral among students and educators alike in secondary schools.
Participants will be able to be exposed to these resources that have been adapted and evaluated in different countries. They will learn how they can apply these resources in their school settings.
