|Issue 1, Vol.46||School Psychology
Psynopsis is inviting articles on the topic of school and educational psychology’s contributions to the mental health and well-being of children and youth. In 2022, the CPA published a position paper titled Mental health care for Canadian children and youth. The role of school psychologists https://cpa.ca/docs/File/Sections/EDsection/Mental Health Care for Canadian Children and Youth – FINAL EN.pdf. This was a response to mounting evidence from numerous provincial, national and international sources (research, surveys, media, etc.) indicating an increasing need for mental health care for children and youth. Additionally, data show that access to existing mental health services is far from equitable, leaving marginalized, racialized and rural populations at a significant disadvantage. School psychologists have an important role in addressing this crisis by contributing to the provision of universal, equitable, and accessible mental health services through the education system.
In this edition, Psynopsis would like to highlight innovative practices, advocacy initiatives, training models, and applicable research in the field of school and educational psychology, and is seeking submissions to address a wide range of related topics.
