The Halton District School Board is hosting a pair of virtual mental health and well-being information sessions for parents and guardians of students from Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills.
Covering topics based on parental feedback, each session will be led by a mental health expert in that area who will share their knowledge and provide helpful information and resources.
The first session is Supporting Gender-Diverse Students on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The second is Mental Health, Well-Being and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) on Thursday, Jan. 19 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Registration is required for these sessions as limited spots are available. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions when completing the registration form or during the session.
