The last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for everyone, particularly for students and their parents and caregivers.

As life continues to move forward to a return to normal – including a return to in-school learning – the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee is offering some helpful insight courtesy of this year’s annual Parent Conference.

Focusing on child and teen mental health, the virtual conference, You’ve Got This! Mental Health After COVID: Getting Back to Normal, takes place Saturday, Oct. 16 from 9 to 11 a.m.

As always, this much-anticipated conference is free however registration at is required. All KPR parents, caregivers and employees are welcome to ‘attend’.

Registrants will receive a link to the online presentation, which will feature practical advice on supporting their child’s or teen’s health from Dr. David Templeman. A Child and Youth Psychiatrist, Dr. Templeman also is an engaging speaker and author of A Teenager’s Guide to Life: The Secret to Living Life and Being Happy.

In honour of this annual event’s 20th anniversary, the committee has also put together a special conference package for registrants including a treat and practical keepsake.

The presentation will also be captured and posted on the board website after the conference.
