Oolagen provides on-site support in three Toronto secondary schools: Marc Garneau, Forest Hill Collegiate and Parkdale Collegiate. Being right where the kids are makes it possible to reach those who will not or cannot access mental health services through traditional means. It also creates opportunities to help underserved, high-risk student populations and their families.
By delivering preventive workshops on a range of topics (like bullying) and consulting with teachers and guidance counsellors, Oolagen is a welcome and integral presence in these communities. We can help teachers and school staffs cope with behaviours in the classroom rather than having students removed or expelled from school.
