The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) is pleased to introduce the OCSB Mental Health and Well-Being Strategy 2018-2021, which is the first document produced aligning with our Board’s new Strategic Commitments. This resource reflects what we value and have accomplished and supports our work going forward.
At the centre of our new Strategic Commitments is Be Well, which states, “…honouring the dignity of every person, we care for and support the well-being of all.” This commitment begins with the fundamental belief that we are all created in the image and likeness of God, deserving of dignity and respect, of care for our mental, physical, and emotional well-being.read more

It is also important for adults to understand that experiencing stress and adversity can contribute to internal symptoms such as anxiety, fear or depression and behaviours such as aggression, reactivity or withdrawal.
