Mental Health Resources and Information

Last October, our Learning Services Department created an online workshop for parents titled "Understanding Worry and How to Work with It." 

Due to popular demand, SD43 has offered to share this video of two of our school psychologists, Sami Du Sautoy and Janet Kidd, discussing strategies to help children and youth manage worries. ​
