The word “wellness” spelled out with wooden blocks.

Mental Health and Well-Being​​

Learn about our student mental health strategy and available resources.


The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) Student Mental Health Strategy is designed to raise awareness, build capacity and provide a coordinated and evidence-based/informed approach to mental health.

With our Catholic faith embedded in this approach, we engage students, families, mental health partners and all staff in supporting student mental health and well-being within the TCDSB.


At TCDSB, children and youth grow to reach their full potential. Our school board is anchored in Catholic values, in which the mental health of children and youth is recognized as a key determinant of well-being and achievement.

Every school in the TCDSB will be a mentally healthy school that demonstrates pervasive caring and promotes well-being and achievement for students, staff and our community.
