Youth Mental Health

All Richmond Secondary School parents and guardians are invited to a special Zoom presentation on Youth Mental Health at the next PAC meeting on Wednesday, April 14 at 6:30 PM.  (Please check your email for the meeting link.).

Teenage years are typically filled with physical, emotional, and cognitive changes. There are hormonal shifts, more independence and responsibility, and peer challenges.  It is therefore not surprising that teens have been more vulnerable to declines in psychological health over the last year.  The ongoing stress, fear, isolation, and uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic can wear anyone down, but our youth have had an especially difficult time coping emotionally. 

Please join our RHS Counselling Team to learn more about youth mental health and how to support your teen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
