As part of our Mental Health Strategy, St. Clair Catholic has launched a Speaker Series for all parents, guardians, and staff. Each month from January-June 2021, an expert will be invited to present a FREE, virtual session to spread awareness and provide additional learning opportunities and support on important topics related to mental health and wellness.
