In addition to celebrating Catholic Education this week, May 7 – 11 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. One in five Ontario children and youth has a mental health disorder. On May 9th, our school will be having a GREEN DAY to raise awareness and show support. Children’s Mental Health Week is about increasing awareness of the signs of child and youth mental health concerns, decreasing stigma and understanding that help is available. Classes will be involved in activities that discuss the importance of being healthy, not just in our bodies, but in our minds as well with a focus on positive coping strategies to take care of our personal mental health.
