St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Elementary School

St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Elementary School in Oakville, ON, became the first elementary school in Canada to receive a Friendship Bench for mental health. The bright yellow bench will serve as a safe space for students to connect with their peers and serves as a permanent and visual reminder of the importance of speaking openly about mental health issues.

“Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.” ~ Robert Green Ingersoll
