This week, we recognize Children’s Mental Health Week in the TDSB.
During these challenging times while our schools are closed, the mental health and well-being of our students is a priority in the TDSB. Caring for others and being cared for is one of the most powerful protective factors for everyone’s mental health and well-being. Research shows that providing a caring, inclusive and welcoming climate improves resilience and the ability to achieve.
We want everyone to focus on noticing, encouraging and acknowledging caring and kind interactions. We need to help ensure that every student feels that they are valued and that they matter. Caring matters now more than ever!
Take a look at our COVID-19 specific resources as well as resources that support students’ ongoing mental health and well-being needs. Follow #TDSBwellness online too, and on our website, and learn practical tips and strategies for well-being.
