On My Mind is currently being delivered by trained teachers and evaluated by research teams in Czechia and Georgia, and is not being offered for implementation outside of structured research projects. All the resources below have been designed to support implementation of On My Mind by trained teachers. If you are interested in collaboration or have enquiries about implementation in your country/context please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a teacher who is implementing On My Mind in your classroom in either 2021-2022 or 2022-2023, and have any questions please contact:

If you are a principal who has been contacted, we are excited to work with you. Steps you may take now:
- Become our official partner, committing to official cooperation with the National Institute of Mental Health on improving mental health and well-being of students and teachers.
- Support your teacher to get trained in delivering On My Mind. If possible, accommodate their needs by excusing their training-related days off and support training-related expenses such as travel.
- Offer teachers your support when they are implementing the program in your school. Teachers are at the frontline of school and students’ well-being. Supporting teachers to pursue mental health and well-being will translate to healthier students and a healthy school environment.
In everyday life, everyone experiences ups and downs and sometimes feels overwhelmed. It’s perfectly normal to use the support of others – friends, family, and/or even professional help.
Everyone can experience different warning signs. Usually, there are some changes in how we feel, what we do and how we interact with others. It’s OK to ask for help for yourself or a peer – even if that feels overwhelming.

Parents are the very first teachers of children. They can model the kinds of skills, attitudes, and behaviors we want all students to develop. Along with the schools, parents are key partners in helping children acquire social and emotional skills as well as maintaining good mental health.
