Mental Health Support
Tuesday November 23, 2021
We recognize that being required to isolate in these circumstances is disruptive and could be very difficult for you and your family. There are many COVID-specific resources for parents, children, and youth, about how to cope during times of uncertainty and change. Some can be found on our UGDSB website and other very good sources are listed below:
If you are concerned about the mental health and well-being of yourself or your child and need support during this time, do not hesitate to reach out. You can contact Amanda Hunt CYC at the school, or, for 24-hour mental health support:
