Stigma-Free Society presentations for students and teachers to balance our minds

balancingourminds.pngSurrey Schools and the Stigma-Free Society are giving teachers and students tools to address mental health in the classroom with a series of presentations titled Balancing Our Minds, aimed at Grade 5-7 students.

Starting today, classes throughout the district will have an opportunity to participate in these presentations, which aim to reduce the stigma around mental health and inspire resilience in students. The presentations take place on April 6, 13 and 20 from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

The Stigma-Free Society is a Vancouver-based registered charity that has designed programs providing education about stigmas with an emphasis on mental health and peer support, particularly for those facing mental health challenges with a special focus on youth.

The presentations will include professional documentary-style videos on mental health educational topics and personal stories, live presentations from speakers sharing their own experiences with stigma and mental health, and training for students on how to use the society's student mental health toolkit and online resources. Classes will have an opportunity to interact live on the YouTube chat and ask questions.
