2 – February 2014 -Mental Health Awareness Seminar

 

The Youth Girls of the Scarborough Sai Centre hosted a Mental Health Awareness Seminaron February 9, 2014 for the group 3 and 4 students. We had called upon Juanita Nathan asthe guest speaker who is vastly knowledged with this topic. Ms. Nathan is a public schoolboard trustee, a community outreach worker, seniors support staff, and a counselor for women fleeing violence. She spoke about the main issues middle school and high school students go through such as stress, anxiety, depression, along with the misconceptions of mental health. Fortunately, group 3 and 4 students are all in the same session so we were able to have close to 120 students at the seminar as well as about 10 parents.
