The Mental Health Team is excited to partner with Common Compass (Ontario non-profit organization which partners with schools to strengthen social-emotional wellbeing and mental health), for a session jam-packed full of practical, evidence-informed strategies parents can begin using at home today to support their child through stress and anxiety. Parents will learn how to:
- Understand the difference between a temporary feeling of stress or anxiety, and when additional support is needed;
- Understand how parents can be a mediating factor by being supportive or how they can increase the child’s risk of experiencing anxiety;
- Realize the impact of language, and learn suggestions on how to phrase things to best connect with your teen;
- How to incorporate healthy coping strategies.
See the flyer in our Week at a Glance for more information. Parents MUST register through their child’s K12 account.
