Education Week & Mental Health Awareness Week

It's a big week within PRSD! From May 1-5 our schools will be celebrating Education Week AND Mental Health Awareness Week.

We'll be highlighting events for both throughout the week and showcasing what students and schools are doing to bring attention to their education and mental health within their classrooms!

The first Alberta School Week (Education Week) was held December 2–8, 1928. Its purpose then, as now, is to call attention to the importance of education and to show the public the good things happening in Alberta schools.

As for Mental Health Awareness Week, stories let us share information in a way that creates empathy which in turn promotes a feeling of emotional connection between individuals, groups, families and communities. During #CMHAMentalHealthWeek, we can harness the power of storytelling to help build connections and understanding between each other while strengthening our communities.

Use #MyStory to join the conversation or please visit the following links for support and information: Mental Health Week or PRSD's Mental and Emotional Help page at www.prsd.ab.ca/get-mental-and-emotional-help
