The HDSB is hosting more than 15 Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions for parents/guardians in April and May. These sessions will cover specific topics based on feedback from parents/guardians through a survey sent earlier this year. Each will be led by a mental health expert in that area who will share their knowledge and provide helpful information and resources.
Session presenters will include HDSB staff and mental health experts from local community organizations including Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK), ADAPT, Danielle’s Place, National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC), Eat2Grow, CHM Therapy Services, Halton Support Services, Developmental Services of Ontario, Mental Health and Addiction Nurses, Roots Community Services, and Bayridge Counselling Centres.
Session topics include:
Healthy eating, body image, eating disorders
Self-regulation and emotional well-being
Substance use, vaping, online/video gaming
Supporting children with learning disabilities
Social isolation and connectedness for 2SLGBTQ+ youth
Impact of COVID-19 and racism for Black identifying families
Staying engaged during online learning
