Mental Health & Wellness

Information for Parents

Our Division prioritizes inclusion and expects our school communities to be welcoming, caring, respectful and safe while fostering a sense of belonging, and supporting the emotional and physical wellbeing and mental health of all staff and students.

Universal teaching of social emotional skills is a strategy in our schools focusing on maintaining positive mental health.

Maintaining and supporting positive mental health in the home is very important. Check this page for links and resources to support your children and family.
