The HDSB is hosting more than 15 Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions for parents/guardians in April and May.

Session topics include:

  • Healthy eating, body image, eating disorders

  • Self-regulation and emotional well-being

  • Substance use, vaping, online/video gaming

  • Supporting children with learning disabilities

  • Social isolation and connectedness for 2SLGBTQ+ youth

  • Impact of COVID-19 and racism for Black identifying families

  • Staying engaged during online learning

  • Anxiety

  • Psychiatric medications


Learn about the various sessions available and view event details on the Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions webpage.


How to register: Registration is required for these sessions as limited spots are available. Parents/guardians can register by completing the Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions Registration Form. Sessions will be held on Google Meet or Zoom (depending on the session) and registrants will be emailed a link to access the session. Sessions will not be recorded.


You will have the opportunity to submit questions when completing the registration form or during the session.


All Province of Ontario schools will be moving online as of Monday April 19, indefinitely, as per order of the Ministry of Education. We will endeavor to ensure that all of our students have the materials they need in order to work from home. Our 'return to in-person learning' will be announced at a later date. In the meantime, please reach out to your child's teachers if you have any questions about school and program. Teachers will be using Monday, April 19th to get the transition set up and to connect with all their families and synchronous learning starts on Tuesday, April 20th, 2021


We encourage families to continue to check for updates from us and the HDSB through email (SchoolMessenger), www.hdsb.ca, and the Board’s social media pages (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram).
