Healthy MindsApril 26, 2022
Winnipeg School Division embarked on a Healthy Minds Initiative in 2013 to recognize and promote mental health literacy among our students, staff, and community. In our continuing divisional efforts to facilitate awareness and recognize the importance of positive mental health in our school communities, WSD has aligned with the Canadian Mental Health Association’s national Mental Health Week.
