About the Session

Working Together – that’s the goal! This networking day is designed to provide you with opportunity to learn from one another, encounter new ideas, and to connect in person with folks you wouldn’t meet otherwise. There’s incredible work happening around the province to support mentally healthy cultures in schools. Let’s learn from one another, find ways to work together, and build a strong web of support across the province for our students.
