Mental Health Week - May 4-10, 2015

May 6, 2015 - Despite the fact that mental health concerns affect one in five young people, fewer than
25 percent of children and youth with mental health problems receive treatment. The
biggest reasons for this are a lack of understanding and a fear of being stigmatized or
negatively perceived by others.
In Ontario, May 4-10, 2015 is declared Children’s Mental Health Week. This week is
about increasing mental health awareness, decreasing stigma, and increasing
knowledge about available help. Sudbury Catholic Schools would like to take this
opportunity to extend awareness of mental health and our board’s Mental Health and
Well-Being Strategy to students and parents.
Each of our schools will be provided with information cards and magnets to send home
with each student, highlighting the SCDSB Mental Health and Well-Being Strategy and
the website portal. Through these resources parents can become more aware of child
and youth mental health, gain knowledge of our board’s efforts, and have access to
resources.
Schools with students in grade 7+ will also receive posters to display throughout their
hallways and classrooms. By showcasing these posters, we are de-stigmatizing mental
health and creating a safe and accepting environment in our schools that is proven to
influence student well-being and improve conditions for learning.
Thank you for your continued efforts in making Sudbury Catholic Schools a place where
well-being matters! If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact
the Sudbury Catholic District School Board at 705-673-5620.
