March 7th is Black Mental Health Day

Black Mental Health Day, recognized each year on the first Monday of March, is an opportunity to confront the impacts of anti-Black racism on the physical and mental health of Black Canadians. 

As a District, we acknowledge the historic and contemporary role of schools in Canada in perpetuating myths, doctrines, false science, and narratives that have resulted in strategies and behaviours which have compromised how children of African descent feel, think, grow, and actualize their potential, promise and purpose in the world. Though these are year-round problems, Black Mental Health Day provides an important opportunity to discuss these realities, share support and resources, and acknowledge the need for change.
