Dots for Kids Day - RING A BELL Campaign December 4 - December 8, 2023
On Friday, December 8, people across New Brunswick will be celebrating the 13th annual Dots for Kids Day. This campaign is part of a grassroots movement that has been empowering youth, family, and community to take positive actions in support of kids’ mental health since 2010.
As part of the Dots for Kids Day Ring A Bell Campaign students in kindergarten to grade eight across the province will be learning about mental health and wellness in schools from December 4 - December 8 in their classes or virtually through different lesson plans, activities, and videos leading up to the main bell ringing event! This year, Carrefour Étudiant in Beresford is hosting the Provincial Bell Ringing event on Friday, December 8 as part of their school's wellness activities.
The goal of the Ring A Bell Campaign is to raise awareness and inspire youth, their families, and communities to take positive actions in support of youth mental health. By taking part in this collaborative process we are recognizing that this campaign is a powerful example of the kind of social innovation necessary to break stigma and support everyone in our community, recognizing that everyone has mental health.
Our emphasis is on educating everyone in our province on the importance of taking preventative and restorative actions to improve our mental health and wellness.
