World Mental Health Day
October 10, 2018
 
Each year the World Health Organization Acknowledges and Celebrates “World Mental Health Day” in October.  World Mental Health Day provides us with an opportunity to reach out to those who may need support, raise awareness, and decrease stigma, or to learn more about mental health and mental illness. Resources from the World Health Organisation can be found at
http://www.who.int/mental_health/world-mental-health-day/en/
  
World Mental Health Day also provides our TCDSB community with an opportunity to review our own TCDSB Mental Health Crisis Response Guidelines which are found on our TCDSB Mental Health page https://intranet.tcdsb.org/Departments/SpecialEducation/mentalhealth/Pages/Resources-for-Teachers.aspx Developed by TCDSB Psychology and Social Work Staff in consultation with school administrators, the TCDSB Mental Health Crisis Response Guidelines offer excellent , evidence based strategies and procedures for schools to consider when experiencing the aftermath of an event that results in mental health upset.
  
For our students, staff, and parents, World Mental Health Day provides us with an opportunity to check in with each other and reflect on how we might be able to make our schools Mentally Healthy and Well. For more information on programs and resources supporting student mental health and well-being see  https://www.tcdsb.org/ProgramsServices/SpecialEducation/mhs/Pages/Mental-Health-Strategy.aspx
