Along with spring and basketball, is the long stretch to the end of the school year. Members of sd57 student advisory council were talking about the stress of completing high school at a recent school board meeting.

"As parents, nothing is as important to us as our child’s health and well-being. Throughout their lives we play a vital role in their development, striving to ensure that they reach their optimal physical, mental and emotional well-being. Our involvement is central to their wellness. When we have concerns about our child’s well-being, working in collaboration with school personnel and mental health professionals can go a long way in ensuring that our child is being given every opportunity to be healthy and happy. Staying informed, learning all that we can about child and youth mental health, being there to guide them and advocate for them can make a world of difference. The links below may be helpful to parents wanting to learn more about mental health." FROM THE CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE FOR MENTAL HEALTH (ONTARIO)
