Between April 28-May 1, Parkland School Division will host The MHCC Headstrong Summit with around 400 PSD students from across the district to increase student understanding of mental health and wellness. Sponsored in part by the RBC Foundation, ATA Local 10, and the Mental Health Commission of Canada, this summit will introduce students to people who have experienced and recovered from mental illness in order to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and addictions. Our students will have the opportunity to connect with multiple community partners who can support students and families at all stages of their health journey. We are grateful to the planning committee and Ottawa delegation of student leaders who have prepared our division for this exciting learning opportunity.
Thank you to Alberta Parenting for the Future, Alberta Health Services Health Promotion Coordinator, Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program, Freson Bros., Parkland School Division Learning Services Team, Spruce Grove Save On Foods and the Stony Plain Youth Centre.
