Flex Your Head is a universal mental health promotion program for youth created by The Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. Flex Your Head was developed to help youth think about, talk about, and understand issues of mental health and wellness within a safe, fun, and welcoming environment. In an active, peer-based format, youth are given the knowledge, skills, and strategies to cope with stress and distress and promote positive mental health and wellness.
From this website, you can receive online training through 7 short modules. The online modules and online staff manual are free of charge but there is a cost to purchase the program guide and a hardcopy of the staff manual.
The vision of wellness education in Alberta is for students to be educated, informed and contributing members of society and to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be well in every sense of the word—emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually. Wellness education incorporates the needs of all students.
