Mental Health and Well-being Resources

We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone and we care about the range of emotions and levels of stress people may be experiencing in this uncertain and unprecedented time. We realize that the uncertainty about the COVID-19 virus, significant changes to daily routines and structures, changes to social interactions with peers, educators and other important people in our students and families lives, can result in accumulated stress and questions. We believe that looking after our physical and mental health is essential to our well-being. When we are well, we are in a better position to support others at this time. 

In response to the significant impact of COVID-19, the Ministry of Education has made it possible for the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) to provide school social work services through the summer months. SCDSB school social workers are available to work with students who want to participate in the service due to an identified mental health, substance use or personal/family/academic stress.
