Supporting Student Mental Health - Cracking the Anxiety Code

Our Supporting Student Mental Health Learning Series is being led by  Dr. Caroline Buzanko, a psychologist who works with children, teens, and their families to maximize confidence and resilience. 

The learning series includes three sessions in spring 2024. One of these will be for staff and two are parent-focused. Each session consists of a video that can be watched at a time that is convenient for the viewer, followed by a scheduled live question and answer session.

The first video was for staff and focused on "The art of effective behaviour management." A followup Q&A session was held on April 18th.

To kick off Mental Health Week, on Monday, May 6, NLPS hosted a live question and answer session with Dr. Buzanko on Google Meet. For those who were unable to participate, highlights from that session are available below.

On May 7, we shared a series of 4 videos focused on "Cracking the Anxiety Code." Parents will have two weeks to view the videos and reflect on what they have learned. On May 23, Dr. Buzanko will host another live Q&A on Google Meet from 7-8 p.m. Questions can be submitted in advance using this Google Form.

The third session will focus on "Co-regulation to promote self-regulation." The video component will be shared with parents at the end of May, with the question and answer session taking place on June 11.

The Supporting Student Mental Health Learning Series is presented in partnership with Pathways of Hope, a joint initiative between NLPS and the Bonnyville Primary Care Network.
