Fostering Mental Health & Well-Being: Parent Information Sessions

The Special Education Services department at HCDSB is pleased to be hosting a series of parent information sessions to help families adjust and respond to the new norms faced during a global pandemic and how to cope with the mental health and well-being of their children in times of uncertainty and change.

For the health and safety of our HCDSB community, all sessions will be offered virtually, and will be recorded live and available on the Board’s YouTube channel. A link to each live session below will be posted on the Board’s homepage the day of the scheduled presentation, and available on HCDSB’s YouTube channel for later viewing.
