Abstract

Enhancement of mental health literacy is a mental health promotion strategy that may be effective at destigmatizing mental illness and increasing self-seeking behavior. Transitions is a mental health literacy program intended to heighten students' awareness and discussion of mental health problems and promote help-seeking behaviors. Transitions was launched in Nova Scotia in 2007 and distributed to 8,000 students. Transitions has since been launched nationally and is in the process of launching internationally. A follow-up study indicated over 95% of students felt they could relate to Transitions and enjoyed reading it, and 40% discussed Transitions with a friend.
