Highlanders for Mental Health will be collecting essential items such as unscented toiletries and toothbrushes during Mental Health Week, May 7th to the 11th. There will be a homeroom competition as well as daily theme days that week. Highlanders for Mental Health is a student- led initiative supporting the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit and the Youth Wellness Unit at The Moncton Hospital. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit (CAPU) is a 6-bed unit that works with youth from ages 6-16 from all of South Eastern New Brunswick; these youth often arrive without, or run out of during their stay, basic items such as toiletries. During their stay, these young patients receive important help and services for their struggles with their mental health, mental illness and addictions. Our goal is to collect essential items and raise funds for the units during Mental Health Week, May 7th to the 11th. ...and we need your help. For more information please visit to the BMHS website.

We are looking for parents to help decorate the stage for Awards Night, which is Tuesday, June 5th. You would be needed for a couple of hours that afternoon. Contact Mrs. Natasha LeBlanc whose email is on our school website if you can volunteer.
