Themes and strategies identified through public engagement. Existing Initiative Agency Link to Program
Promote existing services for caregivers and frontline staff.
We have resiliency lessons for all students from JK-grade 12. We also have provided all schools with the Kids Have Stress Too! and the Stress Lessons from the Psychology Foundation of Canada. We also teach the Zones of Regulation program in our elementary schools. We provide Christian Meditation in many of our schools. Our Guide for Supporting Child/Youth MH and Substance Use also includes a Coping Strategy Plan for children/youth to complete when they are struggling. YouthNet also does presentations throughout our schools with grades 7-12 (including grade 7/8s in K-8 schools) regarding how to deal with stress. CDSBEO https://www.cdsbeo.on.ca/
SVCHC offers a free six-week Powerful Tools for Caregivers course, which highlights strategies to avoid burnout as caregivers. SVCHC https://seawayvalleychc.ca

Bridges is an internal multidisciplinary group which providers can bring challenging cases to a group of colleagues (group approach). This prevents provider burn-out. SVCHC https://seawayvalleychc.ca
