Summer Mental Health Resources for YCDSB students

As part of the YCDSB Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, we are committed to supporting our students. Together with our community partners, the York Catholic District School Board
(YCDSB) provides access to services that address the mental health needs of our students. We are excited to share with you the opportunities for YCDSB students and their parents/guardians.

From July 5 – August 27, 2021, if you (student over age 12) or your child(ren) would like to speak to a mental health professional or would like to be connected to mental health services available through the board, complete and submit this form. Submitted forms will be checked daily Monday through Friday during working hours only (8:30 – 4:30 pm).

This form is NOT to be used for crisis and/or emergency situations. In these situations, please go to your closest
hospital, call 911 or 310-COPE.

After we receive your email, someone will follow up with you to find out more about your child’s needs. This intake screen will help us determine the most appropriate pathway to service. Individual, short-term psychotherapy can be provided by YCDSB Mental Health Workers or by our community partners such as COMPASS, Addiction Services of York Region and Mental Health and Addiction Nurses (MHAN).

Please visit our Student Mental Health Website, the YCDSB Mental Health Twitter page and the YCDSB Instagram page for more resources and other helpful information.
