Mental health and well-being continues to be a key strategic priority within the SCDSB.  We are pleased to announce a new three-year partnership with Pine River Institute (PRI). 

There are five webinars in the learning series specifically planned for parents and guardians during this school year.

The SCDSB and CFI@PRI are also hosting a three-part learning series for service providers supporting youth and/or offering youth programming. We recognize the importance of community and extending our learning together in service of our students. Information regarding these sessions is also available on the SCDSB website at  

Pine River Institute is a live-in treatment centre and outdoor leadership experience for youth aged 13 to 19 struggling with addictive behaviours and often other mental health issues. Combining therapy with a fully-accredited education program, PRI reinforces the healthy life skills required for a successful future. CFI@PRI extends PRI’s knowledge, experience and evidence-informed treatment approach to families and care providers in the community to support youth mental wellness and prevent the need for more intensive interventions.  Learn more about PRI by visiting their website at
