Jack.org Richmond Green is part of a national network of students working to change the way we think about mental health. We work within our school to shift negative attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours around mental health, so we can create a safer, more supportive community
On Nov 19, in support of Bullying Prevention Week, Jack.Org of RGSS will be having an event called Take a Bite Out of Stigma. Students will be provided with a cookie and a small bag of icing. With that, they will write a stigmatizing word on the cookie, and take a bite out of it.
Nov, 12 2015: Richmond Green was invited to present at the T.A.M.I Stoping Out Stigma Conference at the York Catholic District School Board Head Office about the initiatives that were planned throughout the year. This was a major success and had a broad outreach as we had teachers from both YRDSB and YCDSB asking us about our chapter and initiatives.
