Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions for parents/guardians of elementary and secondary students
The HDSB hosted two Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions in March 2021 to discuss parent, child and youth mental health and well-being, ways in which parents/guardians can support their children, and resources available for youth and families. The sessions feature four panelists (parents, mental health experts, HDSB social workers and community partners) who share their experiences of parenting during COVID-19 and provide helpful information and resources. Parents/guardians learned about:
- How the pandemic may be impacting you and your child’s mental health and well-being
- Coping and well-being strategies for you and your children to support better mental health and well-being
- Resources and support available through your child’s school and within the community
