Student Well Being
Together with other HDSB students, Social Work Well-Being Groups (offered on Google Meet) are for students who would like to learn supportive coping skills in a small group setting.

Mental Health Resources
Schools and parents share a collective responsibility, not only to respond to a student's mental health need, but to include the promotion of positive mental health and prevention of illness in our school communities. Education, awareness and the de-stigmatization of mental health are crucial pieces of the puzzle.
