Mental Health Strategy

Mental Health and Well-Being is essential to student success. We will make student mental health a priority at the Toronto District School Board. We know that one in five Ontario students has a mental health problem, we also know that schools can promote positive mental health, identify and intervene early to prevent the onset of problems and respond to children and youth in distress

The TDSB is actively working to improve the mental health and well-being of our students.

What is Mental Health?

The World Health Organization defines mental health as a "state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community." (World Health Organization)

This is the ideal toward which we strive.

Why Focus on Student Mental Health?

Focusing on child and adolescent mental health and wellness promotion, literacy and education has countless documented benefits. "Early signs of mental disorders frequently appear in adolescence yet they are often undiagnosed and go untreated. Young people with mental health disorders are at great risk for dropping out of school, ending up in jail and of not being fully functional members of society in adulthood."  ( p.35
