If you’re concerned about the mental health of your child who attends public school in Oakville, Burlington, Milton or Halton Hills, you may want to attend an upcoming information session.

The Halton District School Board is hosting Mental Health & Well-Being information sessions for parents/guardians over the next few months.

Each session covers a specific topic based on feedback from parents/guardians. They will be led by a mental health expert in that area who will share their knowledge and provide helpful information and resources.

Upcoming sessions include:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) & Mental Health: Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 6 to 7 p.m.
  • Executive Functioning for High School Students: Tuesday, Mar. 19, from 6 to 7 p.m.
  • Healthy and Unhealthy Stress: Monday, Apr. 15, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Registration is required for these sessions as limited spots are available.

Parents/guardians can register by completing the Mental Health & Well-Being Information Sessions registration form.

Sessions will be held on Google Meet, where closed captioning is available in various languages. Registrants will be emailed a link to access the session. Sessions will not be recorded.

Parents/guardians will have the opportunity to submit questions when completing the registration form or during the session.

The Board’s Mental Health & Well-Being webpage has information for parents/guardians and students on mental health, ways to support positive mental health and well-being, and how to get additional support at school and in the broader community.
