ASD-S Presents an Evening with
Dr. AnnMarie Churchill
April 25th, 2016
Anglophone South School District is pleased to present an evening for parents and guardians with Dr. AnnMarie Churchill. Dr. Churchill will be speaking about child and youth mental health issues and building resilience in our children. There will also be time for parent questions and discussion on mental health issues.
Resilience is the ability to live well and thrive as well as cope in a healthy way with adversity. All of us have the potential to flourish and increase our well-being, even in the face of change, challenges and loss. Research has uncovered not only the factors that can help us to be more resilient and cope better with adversity but also how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. Resilience is an on-going process and we can learn evidence-based skills and strategies for thriving in good times and coping better in difficult times.
