Mental Health Awareness in Schools
A focus on positive mental health for students, families, schools and communities contributes to building a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging. Students who are mentally healthy are resilient and better able to learn, achieve success and build healthy relationships.

Last week, we celebrated education as a district.
Throughout the week, students and staff from Clover Bar Junior High, engaged in conversations about what education meant to them. Below, is some of the feedback and comments shared by the students. Perhaps the most profound realization is that students understand that education is the key to their future.

Connect Parenting Group
This workshop gives a new perspective on relationships and adolescent development. Parents and caregivers meet in small groups with two trained leaders for 90 minutes each week.
Each week, facilitators share practical techniques and ideas that help parents develop a better relationship with their teenager. Parents will be equipped with skills such as empathy building, reframing behaviour, conflict management, and learning how to “step back.” Through “stepping back”, parents are able to “step into” a new way of learning. The safe sharing environment enables parents to learn practical skills, while also hearing concerns from other parents.
The Connect Parent leaders strive to help the participants feel at ease by providing a safe and connected environment to share parenting struggles and successes.
Past participants have shared how Connect Parent has helped them feel a lot more at ease with their own family, knowing they are not alone with their new-found supports of other parents.
Connect Parent is provided free of charge by Strathcona County Family and Community Services. The nine-week program takes place on Thursdays from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at Millenium place from May 2nd until June 25th. A light supper is provided for registered parents/caregivers.
