As part of the Big Blue Sky Initiative, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana has launched a statewide youth mental wellness education program. Starting in 2020, middle and high schools across Montana will have free access to Mental Wellness Basics, a digital course developed by leading education technology provider, EVERFI.
Mental Wellness Basics provides a population level approach to what is often viewed as an individual issue. Through a public health lens, Mental Wellness Basics provides students with opportunities to explore their own mental health and identify challenges that they may face. The course helps students develop concrete strategies for managing those challenges, while increasing their awareness of resources and empowering them with the knowledge, skills, and language necessary to identify and support a peer who may be struggling.
