HMC’s three volume handbook series, “When Something’s Wrong”, is designed to assist teachers, families, and employers in identifying and managing mental health & addictions issues in their respective environments.  To compliment the When Something’s Wrong – Ideas for Families version, HMC collaborated with parents, teachers, professionals, and other caregivers to adapt the content for supportiveminds.ca, an evidence-based online tool for parents and caregivers to help them learn coping strategies and create their own customized Tip Sheets.

Other initiatives include the development of apps and collaboration with healthtech and wearable technology companies to increase the availability of mental health tools and resources to those in need.
