CPIC Presents Mental Health for Every Age

With the state of child and youth mental health in Ontario remaining a concern, it is important for families to seek information and resources to help our youngest students. The Catholic Parent Involvement Committee (CPIC) of the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board recently organized mental health evenings for parents of students who may be struggling with mental health.

“Mental Health for Every Age” was available on three evenings in Barrie, Orillia and Bradford West Gwillimbury and included a keynote speaker from our senior psychologist, Dr. Pat Carney. Parents then had the choice of attending a session which specifically targeted mental health for primary, junior/intermediate or secondary aged students.

Each evening was a great success and was very well attended. We would like to thank the Catholic Parent Involvement Committee making these evenings possible, and to our psychology department who provided great insights and tools to help our Catholic families.

In case you missed the evenings, please see the informative videos from our Psychology team and photos below.
