Welcome to Bear Creek Secondary School’s Wellness page.  This page is meant to provide parents, students, and teachers with helpful links, articles, etc. that may provide support for teenagers in areas of mental, emotional and psychological well-being.

We want to make Bear Creek a place where students can feel comfortable coming forth with their issues and we can support each student in the best possible way.
 

Upcoming Events: 

On Wednesday, October 1st there is going to be a SUSO (Speak Up, Speak Out) presentation of “How’s Your Day?” for all grade 9 students. The presentations will cover the topics of:
 
Stress/Anxiety Self-harm, Depression Abuse, Belonging/Fitting In Bullying, Teen Pregnancy, and Suicide
 
The Overall message from the performance is:

Creating a community of support for students where they can feel comfortable expressing their feelings, thoughts, and emotions about issues that many teens deal with on a regular basis.”
 
Students will leave the performance and debriefing session with resources to help them deal with difficult issues surrounding mental, emotional, and psychological well-being.
