Hats On for Mental Health May 1, 2019

On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, everyone is invited to take part in Hats On! For Mental Health and wear a hat to raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health. Students and staff are encouraged to wear hats and engage in conversations focused on understanding mental health and the importance of removing the stigma associated with mental illness.

You can learn more about Hats On! For Mental Health by visiting canwetalk.ca, a website sponsored by the Alberta Teachers’ Association and the Canadian Mental Health Association that includes a variety of mental health resources. 

The focus on mental health promotion continues during Mental Health Week, which is being held this year from May 6 to 10. Students who are mentally healthy are resilient and better able to learn, achieve success and build healthy relationships.
