|ROSEMOUNT HIGH SCHOOL TO MARK MENTAL HEALTH WEEK|
MONTREAL, APRIL 20, 2016 – With the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Mental Health Week quickly approaching, students at Rosemount High School have decided to raise awareness through a series of YouTube videos.
Running from May 2 to 8, Mental Health Week is an annual campaign where the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) celebrates mentally healthy lifestyles and positive attitudes across Canada.
In recognition of the week, students in Grades 8 through 11, under the direction of teacher Sonia Mangiola and Spiritual and Community Animator Vince Lacroce, created three videos that will be disseminated via social media.
The videos would not have been possible without the help of the Butel family as well as Rosemount High School students Eliana Marra, Dahlia Valiante Pacewith and Vice-Principal Andrew Mangal who composed the musical score.
The current project will serve as a foundation for specialized Mental Illness workshops that Rosemount High School students will deliver to local elementary school students in the fall. Those workshops will take place in concert with the CMHA’s Mental Illness Awareness Week, running from October 3 to 9.
