Stress & Anxiety

Read More

When one is experiencing anxiety, one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviours can feel out of control and out of balance. Anxiety can have crippling effects on the individual and may interfere with many areas of day to day life, including job performance and relationships.

Grief is a natural response to any loss or significant change. Throughout the span of an individuals life, some of these losses may be more painful and difficult to manage than others. Grief, of any kind, can involve complicated emotions which need to be explored and moved through in order to allow the person to integrate the old with the new. When Grief and Loss become overwhelming, it is important to tend to these feelings with the support of trusted friends and professionals

Depression

There are a number of reasons an individual may suffer from feelings of sadness or depression. Some of these circumstances are temporary and will pass on their own. Sometimes, however, low moods and depressive thoughts and feelings become problematic as they present significant challenges in a person’s life and interfere with their ability to function. Finding the right support from friends, family, and professionals can be crucial in overcoming depressive episodes.

Teacher Wellness

In addition, administrative and extra curricular responsibilities are necessary components of ensuring students receive the very best education possible.
