It’s Children’s Mental Health Week!

Monday, May 01, 2017
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB, Inclusive Schools, Student, Parent, and Community

Student mental health and well-being is an important part of student success and a priority at the TDSB.

This week, we recognize Children’s Mental Health Week, an important reminder to be aware of our children and youths mental health and well-being and how we can all work together to support them.

Mental health impacts us all. Just as we all have physical health, we all have mental health. Our mental well-being includes our emotions, our thoughts and feelings, our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties, our social connections, and our understanding of the world around us.

At school, feeling safe, engaged and included all contribute to having a positive sense of well-being. Students need our collective support to be healthy individuals and, the relationship that students have with each other and adults is an important part of that.

At the TDSB, we strive to develop optimism, self-confidence, resilience and a sense of belonging in our students. We need to promote positive mental health, safe and caring schools, healthy schools that understand the importance of physical health, nutrition, physical activity, and inclusive schools that are responsive to all as we celebrate the diversity in our communities.

Schools support mental health and well-being in different ways. It may be practicing yoga, doing daily mindful practices or encouraging kindness.

For students who need additional support, there are many resources available. The TDSB offers a number of supports, services and staff to help with any challenge that your child may encounter.

The first step is connecting with your child’s teacher or principal. They are a well-positioned partner who can share what they notice during the time your child is at school. If necessary, they can then connect you to the Professional Support Services team which includes social workers, psycho-educational consultants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, attendance counsellors, speech and language pathologists and child and youth services.
