Mental Health and Youth

http://www.parentinginottawa.com/en/youth/Mental-Health-and-Youth.asp

This website is broken into sections for parents to learn about mental health for their youth.  There are helpful videos included in sub categories on the website which answer several common questions parent may have. There are several resources as well for reaching out to other services. Mental health and youth is only a small section of parenting in Ottawa and there is little to no information about mental health and well being for younger children, such as children found in an elementary school. In our mandated policy, our goal is to create a policy from grades 1 to 8 and high school. Of course, information for high school students will be different then students in elementary school. This website is also the perspective of the parent, instead of the perspective of the school curriculum/environment though parents play an active role in the school community as well.
