On October 7, Digby SchoolsPlus, DRHS and NSCC's Mental Health Promotion and Recovery program partnered to deliver an information session to students at DRHS. Topics included defining Mental Illness, identifying school and community resources and breaking down the myths and stigma surrounding Mental Illness. Students were encouraged to wear "Orange", as a way of promoting Mental Illness Awareness Week. A big thank you to DRHS alumni Stephanie Comeau and classmate Elisha Stairs who are second year students enrolled in the Mental Health Promotion and Recovery program at NSCC Burridge Campus for providing this opportunity to our school community. Great job, DRHS staff and students.
Autism Arts classes for children and youth will be offered on Saturday mornings this fall at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth, beginning October 24th and running through December 12th.
The Autism Arts program is based on a model developed at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax in partnership with Autism Nova Scotia. An art instructor and an occupational or recreational therapist work together to ensure that each child is engaging in the art and group experience, and is given the opportunity to explore art making as another form of communication.
Autism Arts classes are given for children and youth ages 5 and up. Sessions for the younger group, ages 5 to 11, will be given at 10:00 a.m. and run to 10:45 a.m. Youth aged 12 and up will have classes from 11:15 a.m. until noon.
There are spaces for six participants in each group. Fees are $10 per week; $80 for the full 8-weeks. Financial help is available; details are available at the Art Gallery.
For more information and to register for the classes, parents and caregivers should call the Art Gallery at 902 749-2248 or email email@example.com.
