Keeping informed and practising social distancing are the right thing to do but a period of isolation and worry can be very stressful. Here are some resources to help you care for your mental health and that of children and youth, so that we can all keep our minds active and continue to learn and grow during the pandemic.

Wellington Catholic’s Student Mental Health Services have shared resource to support the mental health and wellbeing of students and caregivers while learning from home.
In addition to the resources, mental health services continues to be accessible for students through our school board. At this time, our Social Workers and Mental Health Clinicians are providing virtual sessions to students. If you are worried about the mental health and wellbeing of your child or you’re noticing an increase in mental health symptoms, you can connect with your child’s teacher or principal and they can connect you with appropriate supports within Wellington Catholic.
