Every Moment Counts

Promoting mental health throughout the day

Welcome to Every Moment Counts

Every Moment Counts (EMC) is a mental health promotion initiative developed to help all children and youth become mentally healthy in order to succeed in school, at home and in the community. This work focuses on reframing mental health as a positive state of functioning – it is more than the absence of mental illness. Positive mental health is associated with feeling good emotionally, doing well functionally, and coping with challenges in everyday life. For children, this means doing well during academic (classroom) and nonacademic (recess, lunch, after-school) times of the day.

A major goal of EMC is to build capacity of all adults serving youth and parents to be mental health promoters. The purpose of this website is share practical information that can be used to promote positive mental health in all children and youth with and without disabilities and/or mental health challenges. Use these free website resources to learn about and implement EMC's embedded strategies and programs.
