Back in the beginning of the school year, we were very blessed to have Dr. Karen Wang who came to PCA on September 15th to present an incredibly informative workshop about why mental health matters for academic success. It was the most participated workshop hosted by PCA Parents Advisory Committee with over 60 participants! Dr. Wang is a consultant psychiatrist at Tyndale University, College and Seminary. She also worked as a high school teacher and guidance counsellor for the TDSB. Most of all, she is our PCA alumna and mother of two beautiful girls who are PCA students as well!
In the presentation, Dr. Wang addressed how mental health impacts academic functioning, what are some common mental health concerns in children and teenagers, and ways to find help for our children in a mental health crisis. We are grateful for Dr. Wang to share the presentation note with us. Please click here for the presentation.
We are excited to announce that Dr. Wang will also be speaking at the upcoming event “Toronto Health Seminar” happening at PCA on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 from 10:30am to 1:00pm. Stay tuned for more details!
