The Robb Nash Project backed by Telus hopes to improve the mental health of students in Alberta in the classroom.

The non-profit charity has launched a new student-focused mental wellness curriculum that uses real-life stories and music to support social and emotional learning.

Production of the educational health program is supported by a $40,000 grant from the Telus Friendly Future Foundation.

A Living Curriculum: Stories of Life through Darkness, includes four modules, which contain interactive resources and stories about youth-charity founder/musician Robb Nash.

The curriculum is designed to help students understand that if they’re struggling, they’re not alone and, with help, there is hope and a path to a better future.

The program is accessible to schools in Lloydminster although it’s not part of the curriculum in the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education.

The most recent Mental Health Index report shows that Alberta has the lowest mental health score among all Canadian provinces.
