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. She also answered many questions from our parents. Praise God for a delighted evening!
