St. Emily’s Mental Health and Wellness Day: Your Attitude Determines Your Direction

Ahead of Mental Health Week, Grade 4-6 students at St. Emily CES in Vaughan participated in a Mental Health and Well Day, themed on the idea that “Your Attitude Determines Your Direction.” This day featured a series of activities that bring awareness to student well-being and gave them insight to real life tools that they can use to self-regulate, reflect, and recharge. Several special guests from the Board and community partners led information sessions and break out workshops, including the Board’s Mental Health Lead, Dr. Geoff Sorge. Students also learned about apps that can help with self-awareness and self-calming techniques they can use to help maintain a mentally healthy lifestyle.
