Dear Psychology,

It is our hope that by equipping children with effective stress management strategies, we can contribute to improving their overall mental health and well-being. Please take a moment to read what we have been doing to ensure that every child in Canada has the opportunity to thrive and how you can support.

Welcome back TD Bank!

We are delighted to receive support from TD Bank Group through the TD Ready Commitment to help us develop a Chatbot for teens. Stress Coach 24/7 is based on our Stress Lessons Grades 9-12: Tools for Resilience program, a resource full of psychologically-sound strategies and tools to help teens develop resilience and positive coping skills. With the development of this Chatbot, teens will be able to ask questions about how to deal with day-to-day stressors and receive real-time answers with stress management tools they can use.

What's New

In March 2023, we delivered our Stress Busters program to a Grade 6 class at the Jackman Institute for Child Studies. Children learned Kids Have Stress Too! stress management strategies which includes interactive learning activities, group discussions, and individual reflection exercises to help them grasp the concepts and apply to their daily lives.

Upon completion of the Stress Busters program, students had a comprehensive understanding of stress management and gained a newfound confidence in their ability to cope with stress in a healthy and productive way.

Here is some feedback from students and teachers:

  • “Stress Busters is an informative, engaging, and meaningful workshop for students. My class gained many useful strategies on how to cope with stress and the effects it has on our bodies and the people around us”. - Nadia
  • “They are very good and knowledgeable about stress. It helps you manage stress a lot better.”- Student
  • “I learned lots of exercises for stress”.- Student

If you are interested in your child or school participating in Stress Busters, please contact Pamela Sariyannis.
