In November 2021 the two organizations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) setting out a three-year partnership and working agreement.<br><br>The Centre for Family Initiatives at Pine River Institute (CFI@PRI) will provide several multi-part learning series focused on student mental health and well-being to SCDSB families, staff and within SCDSB’s broader school communities. <br> <br>Pine River Institute is a live-in treatment centre and outdoor leadership experience for youth 13 to 19 struggling with addictive behaviours and often other mental health issues. Combining therapy with a fully-accredited education program, Pine River reinforces the healthy life skills required for a successful future. CFI@PRI extends Pine River’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 Pine River Institute by visiting their website at <a href="http://www.pineriverinstitute.com/" title="Opens Pine River Institute website" class="sizeable" style="color:#003f5a;text-decoration-line:underline;background-color:transparent;display:inline;margin:0px;transition:all 0.3s ease 0s;border-color:transparent;font-size:inherit !important;">www.pineriverinstitute.com</a>. <br></p></div></div></div></div><p class="sizeable" style="margin-bottom:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;padding:0.15em 0px;line-height:1.5em;letter-spacing:0.3px;font-size:0.938em;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-4"><strong>Parent/Guardian Session</strong></span><br></p><p class="sizeable" style="margin-bottom:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;padding:0.15em 0px;line-height:1.5em;letter-spacing:0.3px;font-size:0.938em;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;"><a href="https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_4uES9ArXS_exRB2kt3lNEg" title="Opens registration for parent/guardian sessions" class="sizeable" style="color:#003f5a;text-decoration-line:underline;background-color:transparent;display:inline;margin:0px;transition:all 0.3s ease 0s;border-color:transparent;font-size:inherit !important;">Register for the parent/guardian sessions</a><br><br></p><h6 style="margin:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;font-size:18px;padding:0.1em 0px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;">Parenting for positive mental health (part 1)</h6><p class="sizeable" style="margin-bottom:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;padding:0.15em 0px;line-height:1.5em;letter-spacing:0.3px;font-size:13.3333px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong style="font-family:gotham_htfmedium;font-size:0.938em;">Nov. 23, 2021</strong><br>Understanding your child's behaviours and development so that you can respond with intention to promote mental wellness and growth. <br><br></p><h6 style="margin:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;font-size:18px;padding:0.1em 0px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;">Parenting for positive mental health (part 2)</h6><p class="sizeable" style="margin-bottom:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;padding:0.15em 0px;line-height:1.5em;letter-spacing:0.3px;font-size:13.3333px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong style="font-family:gotham_htfmedium;font-size:0.938em;">Nov. 30, 2021</strong><br>Understanding your parenting style and the challenges parents/guardians face when their children push back.<br><br></p><h6 style="margin:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;font-size:18px;padding:0.1em 0px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;">Understanding and managing screen time</h6><p class="sizeable" style="margin-bottom:0px;font-family:gotham_htfbook;padding:0.15em 0px;line-height:1.5em;letter-spacing:0.3px;font-size:13.3333px;color:#343534;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong style="font-family:gotham_htfmedium;font-size:0.938em;">Jan. 25, 2022</strong><br>What parents/guardians need to know about the digital world and how it affects their child's development.
