Bell Let’s Talk Principal Message

When it comes to mental health, it’s important to support ourselves and each other. There are many actions big and small that we can do to improve our own mental health and the lives of people living with mental health issues. Know that it’s okay to ask for help if you are struggling. Remember that our teachers, counsellors and principals are here to listen and provide you with support!
