The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre is an incredible asset to children, families, and educators in BC. If you haven't checked out their website, please do! Also, their Parent-in-Residence (PIR) program is amazing. Call the Centre to speak with Mary McCracken or one of the other PIRs, all of whom have vast experience navigating BC's mental health system.

I love this list of suggestions for connecting with our kids in meaningful and fun ways!
