MENTAL HEALTH COMMITTEE


There is a strong relationship between eating healthy and staying active to having good mental health and well-being.  according to Health Canada, children and youth require at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day.

Exercise provides you with new challenges, helps to give you a more positive view about yourself, leads to more social interactions, improves you attitude and mood, and can reduce depression and anxiety levels.

Be active every day and make sure to eat well.  You will have more energy overall, spend quality time with your friends and family, and be more focused in school.
