My name is Jessica, and I am an Addiction and Mental Worker with Rocky View Schools. This is a new role within RVS that was introduced as part of a response to the impacts of COVID-19. I will be working with Bert Church High School every Tuesday, for a full day, until the end of the school year.
As the Addictions and Mental Health Worker I am here to support the staff and students in addressing issues with addiction and mental health.
My role within RVS includes:
- Classroom psycho-educational presentations on various topics involving substance and behavioural/process addictions
- Information booths and connecting to community resources
- Staff professional learning, coaching, consultation, and collaboration
- Parent education and addiction awareness
I look forward to getting to know everyone at Bert Church High School throughout the rest of the school year!!
