Statement on the announcement of new mental health learning


“OPSBA welcomes Minister Lecce’s announcement about student mental health. We agree with the Minister’s comments that “mental health and well-being are the foundation of student success.” As a founding member of the Ontario Coalition for Children and Youth Mental Health we are grateful for this investment in the education sector. We acknowledge that cross-sectoral coordination is required to best serve children and youth in their own communities. OPSBA appreciates funding and support for effective, ongoing mental health literacy for students, as well as professional learning for staff working directly with students and their families.”

– Cathy Abraham, OPSBA President
