Through a grant from the Winnipeg Suicide Prevention Network (WSPN) & Sources of Strength (SOS) programs run through several middle and high schools in St. James-Assiniboia School Division (SJASD), an online partnership with Keith Macpherson was developed to promote positive mental health and to introduce the concept of mindfulness to students, parents and staff during the period of remote learning.  Keith developed (7) on-line mindfulness lessons intended for middle & high school students to learn and practice at home to build their resiliencies during these difficult times.  Students, parents and staff may register on-line free of charge through the link provided below.Picture1_1.png
