What are Summer Mental Health Services?
The Ministry of Education has given all school boards one-time funding to provide summer mental health support this summer. Summer Mental Health support will be available virtually beginning Monday, July 5, 2021 until Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021. To support belonging and connectedness, summer mental health services will mainly be provided using a variety of therapeutic and/or psychoeducational groups, which will be co-delivered by Social Workers, Child and Youth Counsellors and Community Service Providers.
For children and youth with Autism and developmental needs, parent consultation and individual services will be offered. For all other students, the need for individual services can be discussed with the intake mental health worker who will be in contact once a referral is made.
