Children's Mental Health Week 2018

Mental health and well-being go hand-in-hand with student success. And our role is to help increase awareness of child and youth mental health needs, decrease stigma and support students with resources and help when needed.

This week, we mark Children’s Mental Health Week. It’s an opportunity for us to emphasize the importance of good mental health and well-being. Mental health, like physical health, is something we all have, and promoting good mental health means promoting and teaching positive coping skills, resilience and taking care of ourselves.

This year’s theme is: This year’s theme is: Doing more of what makes you awesome! (#TDSBawesome) Celebrated through our poster contest submissions (see the winners on the right!)

Eating well, sleeping well, socializing with peers and participating in physical activity are all good self-care activities and help contribute to overall well-being. Good well-being includes positive mental health and a feeling of being welcomed, accepted and engaged in school.

Students cannot achieve academically, if they don't feel safe or welcomed at school if their mental health is at risk and if they don't have the tools or motivation to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle, both inside and out of school. Children have a positive sense of well-being are more resilient and more successful as learners. (Ontario's Well-Being Strategy for Education 2016)

This week, we encourage you to use #TDSBawesome to share with everyone in the TDSB what makes you awesome and keeps you mentally healthy! Don’t forget to follow and tag @TDSB_MHWB
