TCDSB Acknowledges World Mental Health Day Oct.10, 2019

Each year the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledges and celebrates World Mental Health Day on October 10th. World Mental Health Day provides us with an opportunity to raise awareness about mental health and mental illness and to highlight the importance of reducing stigma attached to mental health struggles. Resources from the WHO can be found at the following link:

World Mental Health Day also provides our TCDSB community with an opportunity to review our own Student Mental Health and Well-Being Policy and associated guidelines. The guidelines inform staff of procedures to follow when a student is in need of mental health support, when there is a concern a student may be contemplating suicide, and when there has been a crisis that impacts the school community. The policy and associated guidelines can be found at the following link: https://www.tcdsb.org/ProgramsServices/SpecialEducation/mhs/Pages/Mental-Health-Policy.aspx
 
If you have questions or comments regarding any of the above, do not hesitate to reach out to the Mental Health Department:
 
Marie-Josee Gendron Ph.D., C.Psych - Chief of Mental Health Strategy and Staff Well-Being 
Melissa Hanlon MSW, RSW - Mental Health Leader
