NSFHSA have been busy updating and editing the welcome package for members and this will be available soon for all new members.

I would like to share with you an opportunity that NSFHSA recently received from the Sunlife Financial Chair in Adolescent Mental Health, Dalhousie University/IWK Health Centre to attend a presentation on Cannabis, Mental Health and Youth. This event was sponsored by the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia and Teenmentalhealth.org and took place on Bell Let’s Talk Day (January 30). Two members of NSFHSA were in attendance at this event and gathered lots of information.

As you may be aware the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development recently conducted a provision school bus review and survey. NSFHSA provided a submission for the provincial school bus review and look forward to hearing the results of the review when it is released.

Through the Special Education Program Services (SEPS) NSFHSA has participated in the policy framework for inclusive education in Nova Scotia.

NSFHSA continues to work in support of education for all students in Nova Scotia and will keep you updated on events and news as we receive information.
