Online learning may be an option for students who are experiencing mental health problems and are seeking different strategies for their learning.
Our mental health is as important as our physical health. We only have one brain and one body, so its our job to keep it running in the best way we can by paying attention to and working to improve our mental and physical health.
A number of resources have been recommended by the Sun West School Division’s Positive Mental Health Committee and we would like to share them with you and your family.
We are committed to working with students and families to minimize stressors. Together, we can help make the online learning experience a positive one for all learners. Please reach out to our teachers for more information on strategies for success.
