School social workers Jessica Furman and Alicia Versteegh
We all have mental health. We can’t see it, but it lives on a spectrum that impacts our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
There are times in our lives when mental health can feel really hard to manage on our own. It is during these times that we must lean into our relationships and support systems. At Crescent School, social workers Jessica Furman and Alicia Versteegh support a robust wellbeing program in aid of students, families, and staff. During Mental Health Awareness Month, we try to normalize mental health conversations to reduce stigma and feelings of shame that can sometimes get in the way of reaching out for help when we need it.
