 We'd like to remind you about some of the initiatives we have at CCI to support positive mental health. 

  • Our school social worker is available 4 days per week.  Visit the guidance department to connect with the social worker or speak to any staff member who will he​lp.
  • We have several community agencies who have partnered with CCI to provide extra mental health support to students every day of the week.
  • We offer free, hot meals to any students who don't have a lunch – see the cart in the cafeteria
  • Mrs. Shand, in room 103, is available to students who need support.  You can also connect with a Guidance Counsellor or Special Education teacher any time during the school day for help. 
  • Pay attention to announcements as we have several student support groups running throughout the year, often for 6 to 8 weeks at a time
  • Eighteen students and several staff members received certification in Mental Health 1st Aid training this year because we know that friends go to friends for help.  
  • Our Students Advocating Non-Violence Everywhere (otherwise known as SANE) hosted an awareness raising event, involving students from all grades, which provided information to help us understand the needs of our students.
  • A couple of students have stepped up to work on additional ideas such as offering yoga, nutrition, mindfulness and other wellness sessions throughout the year.
  • Finally, you may have noticed our Wellness dogs roaming the halls on Wednesdays.  These dogs are here to help bring smiles and comfort to students throughout the school. ​
