Mental Health

On Bell Let’s Talk Day, January 25, ISS will be joining in to help create
positive change for mental health.
This morning we’re sharing with you another action we can all take to help create
positive change. Nurturing your own well-being by practicing and learning mental
health strategies: listen to your mind and body; ask for help and take some time if you
are struggling or feeling overwhelmed. You might take a walk, reach out to a friend, or
talk to a teacher. Remember it’s okay to not be okay.
