Mental Health Awareness Week
Chaminade College Preparatory School considers the well-being of our students a top priority. As such, we have created a partnership with CHADS (Communities Healing Adolescent Depression and Suicide) Coalition for our inaugural Mental Health Awareness Week October 1 through 5, 2018. We have developed a number of activities to educate the entire Chaminade Family about this critical issue.
- October 1 - Mental Health Presentation for Parents 6PM The Skip (Please register using the form below)
- October 2-3 - During academic labs, reprrestatives from CHADS Coalition will give a presentation to students and will facilitate an initial screening.
- October 4-5 - Counseling Department Staff will follow-up with students and parents identified by the screening process.
Early intervention is vital in preventing and mitigating the effects of mental illness. We are hopeful that Chaminade's Mental Health Awareness Week will educate our students, faculty and parents on the warning signs of mental health issues as well as provide resources to those that might be at risk or may come in contact with someone at risk.
We are asking for your full support in these activities. Please do not hesitate to contact your son's Counselor with any questions you may have.
