Resources & Supports to Promote Mental Health and Well-being

As part of our Mental Health Strategy, District School Board Ontario North East has provided resources and supports to help educators, parents & guardians and students.

Educators have an important role to play in influencing and reinforcing the mental health and well-being of our students. Providing educators with evidence based information helps them to promote mental health and well-being as well as identify children at risk to ensure early intervention.
