Thank you to our MHED community!

Thank you to the 400+ people who registered for our virtual MHED event on Sunday, October 25. We missed seeing your faces but loved that you joined us to listen to Dr. Jean Twenge.  Her message was overwhelmingly received by many of you who took the time to send us your thoughts and comments.  To learn more about her work click here.

You are not alone and MHED is working hard to build community, especially in this time of Covid. Stay tuned to this page for news on further virtual events.

In the meantime, if you asked a question during Dr. Twenge’s presentation that was not answered, or if you have a question now, ask MHED.

 Announcement (COVID-19)

These times of Coronavirus and social distancing are tough on all of us.
For someone who is living with mental health issues, the anxiety and change in routine can be overwhelming. 
Please know that alone doesn’t mean lonely, and that asking for help is a sign of strength.

Destigmatization. Education. Community.

Parents

Parents, if your child has been diagnosed with a mental health issue, please know you are not alone. We know it can feel that way as you navigate the school system and deal with the pressures and stigma associated with these kinds of issues. And we know this is hard. We are here to support you.

Teachers

Teachers, we know that you are seeing more anxiety in your classrooms than ever before. Statistics tell us that 1 in 5 students — 20% of a classroom — will have some type of mental health issue. This is not defiant behaviour and we need to work together to identify what it truly is.

Community

You are the front line workers with our children — you are the camp counsellors, hockey coaches, dance teachers and more. You spend time with our kids and play such an incredible role in their development. We want to help you to help them to learn and to grow and to empower them, especially in their times of stress and worry. We want to build a compassionate community for all those who suffer, their families and all those who love them.
