Caregiver Education Series

The Division, in partnership with Strathcona County and Elk Island Catholic Schools, is hosting a series of caregiver information sessions focused on ways to support students’ mental health.

Some of the session topics include: dealing with anxiety, teenagers and technology, cannabis, understanding depression and self-injury, test anxiety, building executive functioning skills, and limit setting.

Opioids Don’t Discriminate: An Interactive Experience

From November 5-9, Strathcona County will be hosting a public education event regarding the ongoing opioid crisis. The event is open to students, parents, teachers and community members. Using real stories and statistics from the local community, participants will learn about the science of addiction, as well as the psychology of those struggling with substance-abuse, challenging them to re-consider what they think they know about drug-use.
