For World Mental Health Day, the CECCE introduces new tools!

OTTAWA, October 10, 2014 – This October 10, for World Mental Health Day, the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) is proud to be releasing 18 information packages on mental health, created in partnership with the Centre Psychosocial and the Cowan Foundation.

Mental health is of the utmost importance to the CECCE, because health and well-being play an essential role in student success at school. As Director of Education Bernard Roy says, “We are pleased to be providing these mental health information packages to our social workers, psychologists and other stakeholders, so that they can continue providing the support and encouragement needed to ensure that each and every student reaches his or her full potential.”

The packages are grouped by theme, and offer quick links to mental health agencies and specialized resources to help stakeholders, teachers and parents better support the students. The packages are available on the website of the Centre Psychosocial.

A package on psychological trauma is also being introduced today and is available on the same website. As well, two more packages are currently being finalized, and will be posted there shortly.

The CECCE was able to join forces with the Centre Psychosocial and the Cowan Foundation in order to give school staff, stakeholders and families the tools they need, while also helping to reduce the stigma around mental health issues and encourage the community to promote good mental health.

The Executive Director of the Centre Psychosocial, René-Guy Cantin, said that the project is a logical extension of the Centre’s work: “We are committed to pursuing our common goal by producing other packages that may respond to specific or emerging issues, and that will be made available to stakeholders as soon as they’re ready.”

Lucie Leroux, Senior Consultant at Cowan Insurance Group, said that the Cowan Foundation is “proud to be associated with this initiative, which is a support tool that will make a difference in the lives of children and young people.”

The objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness among the general public on mental health issues and the resources available. According to the World Health Organization, schools are the perfect place to promote mental health among children and youth.

With more than 21 000 students in 41 elementary and 10 secondary schools, as well as its school for adults, the CECCE is the largest Canadian network of French-language schools outside Quebec.

success and well-being of each student
