On February 27, in the St. Marguerite d'Youville Catholic School Gym, from 6:30-7:30, join, Dr. Elizabeth Paquette, Mental Health Lead OCSB to learn about supporting our children and youth in stressful times. After a tragic event, be it local, national or international, it may be difficult for families to know what to do to support their children and youth who may have been impacted by the event. In this session we will discuss how caring adults can help children to understand their emotions and engage in positive coping behaviours following such an incident. Caring adults cannot support their children and youth without also taking care of themselves. We will discuss some practical strategies for self care.
