The overall research and development agenda for exploring the impact of career development and mental health in school settings has 5 phases. The first two phases have been completed, and we are now ready to seek partnerships and funding to pursue Phase 3 of the program through a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant. We also see pursuing SSHRC Insight Grants to further the work of Phase 3, and to serve as the launch pad for Phases 4 and 5 (which are briefly described later).
