In School Support

Chimo works collaboratively with the Trillium Lakelands District School Board and Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board, to provide mental health supports to students in their schools by providing counselling opportunities. As an example, Chimo staff will support students with a variety of mental health related concerns through the development of a supportive relationship and assist them with developing coping and managing skills as needed.  This partnership with local school boards allows students to receive supports that they may otherwise not have due to a variety of reasons, transportation being one.  Students are referred for support by designated School Board Personnel.
