CMHA NS Division is working in partnership with the Young Lives Research Lab at the University of Prince Edward Island to form the Atlantic Research Evaluation & Knowledge Translation team (AREKT) for SEAK Phase III.

AREKT is directed by Dr. Kate Tilleczek and Dr. Brandi Bell of the Young Lives Research Lab (YLRL) – UPEI. Other members of the AREKT team include Patricia Altass, Matthew Munro, and Sarah Gallant, Senior Research Associates of YLRL.

The role of AREKT is to a) evaluate the processes of SEL scale-up, both vertically (institutional sustainability) and horizontally (implementation in schools), and b) develop and deliver integrated knowledge translation (iKT) to multiple audiences.
