At LAS, we value the wellness of our students and staff so our goal for this second semester is “Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds.” To kick off our “Healthy Minds” focus we will be hosting a night with Diane Pisch, our school counsellor, on Tuesday March 4th in the LAS Library at 7pm. Our focus will be: Helping Parents/Guardians Support Their Children through Difficult Times. This event is open to all parents. We will be providing day care as well as coffee and treats. There will be an anonymous question box set up throughout the information session so that Diane can offer answers and support for your questions during the Q & A session at the end.
As the Canadian Mental Health Association says:
At least 1 in 3 Canadians experience mental health struggles each year- CMHA
“Mental health is an essential part of your overall health. Just as physical fitness helps your body to stay strong, mental fitness helps you maintain a state of good mental health. Mental health is more than just the absence of mental illness. It’s a state of well-being.
When you are mentally healthy, you enjoy your life and environment and the people in it. You can be creative, learn, try new things, and take risks. You are able to cope with difficult times.”
