Mental Health Week 2020 Brings a Timely Reminder of the Importance of Self-Care
HCDSB Recognizes Mental Health Week May 4-10, 2020.
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) ​designates the first week in May as Mental Health WeekThis year, it runs from May 4-10, 2020, and the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) will join organizations across Canada in raising awareness about mental health. 

While supporting mental health is always a priority for us, this year Mental Health Week takes on a special significance in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with the importance of caring for ourselves as we care for our students and families, our HCDSB Mental Health team has designated Self-Care as the theme of this year's Mental Health Week.
