Mental Health Resources

The past few years have been highly stressful for many students, families and educators. Anxiety, stress and worry is to be expected and is a typical response to these challenging times. More than ever, it is important that we feel connected and supported as a community.

As the school counsellor,  the role of Francine McLeod is to work collaboratively with our staff and families to support the social and emotional growth and the well-being of our students. Francine is available to our families for one-on-one phone/virtual sessions in order to support students in need and/or provide parent coaching to encourage and maintain positive mental health.

Below is Francine’s guide to mental health resources.
