TCDSB Stop the Stigma Student Mental 
Health and Wellness Symposium

The TCDSB Elementary and Secondary Stop the Stigma Mental Health and Well-Being Student Symposiums are going VIRTUAL this year! 

Elementary students will participate on Wednesday, March 24th from 9:15-11:15 AM, and secondary students will participate from 2:25-4:45 Pm, on Thursday, March 25th. 

As always, we will have speakers to inspire and motivate students to plan and build their 2021 Stop the Stigma campaign during Children's Mental Health Week in May.  

Please note: A registration link has already been sent to all Stop the Stigma Teacher/Mentors. 

As a way to honour Student Voice, our Student Mental Health Advisory Council (SMHAC) will be hosting both events.

In alignment with our pastoral plan for the year and with our May Virtue of the Month, the theme for our 2021 symposium is: We Become Compassionate!
Use the hashtag #TCDSBStopTheStigma and tag @TCDSB with any STS ​related posts on social media.
