Pathways to Mental Health is not meant to educate educators to make preliminary diagnosis of mental illness/disorders. Diagnosing mental illness/disorders must be done by a licensed mental health professional. This site is not meant to replace the knowledge and guidance of mental health professionals in the school and its community. Examples of these professionals are: Guidance Counsellors, Youth Health Centre Coordinators, School Psychologist, General Practitioners, Psychologists, etc..
“We need teachers to comment on what they see and what has changed, instead of labelling or diagnosing” (participants of the Mental Health Resources Website Team)
