Mental Health Capacity Building

Dr. Martin Leboldus Catholic High School is fortunate to have the Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative (MHCB) in our school as one of five pilot projects in Saskatchewan. β€‹

What is MHCB?​

MHCB is an initiative funded by Saskatchewan Health Authority.   MHCB is being led by the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) with support from the Ministries of Health and Education.

  • The MHCB program works to provide programming and support to students, schools, families and communities in building their mental health and wellness capacity.

  • The MHCB Program provides prevention supports designed to build strengths while reducing the stigma of addiction and mental illness.​
