Mental Health Matters at BPS

Bell Let’s Talk Day is January 30th – tomorrow!  Many of us will be wearing the colour Blue to represent this initiative and as a statement that we support speaking out and speaking up about Mental Health and Wellness.  We encourage you to send your child to school in Blue and to talk about Mental Health and Wellness at home too!  Bell will be donating 5cents to mental health initiatives for every applicable text, call, tweet, social media tag and Snapchat filter – so we will be tweeting our hearts out tomorrow!

Yesterday our Grades 6-8 students heard from YouthSpeak with a focus on mental health and wellbeing.  The message delivered was that your feelings are valid and it is important to find someone you feel comfortable with to talk to.  If you would like to hear more about this, speak to your Grade 6-8 student or Homeroom Teacher.  It was a wonderful presentation.
