There are many agencies that work with CMHS to support students. To learn more about these services please contact Ms. Banack. Some include:

The United Way: “All In For Youth”

Support provided to remove barriers (financial, academic, emotional) that may hinder high school graduation CMHS is an “All In For Youth” school in partnership with The United Way. We work to support students who may have barriers in their lives, that make high school graduation challenging. “AIFY” offers free math tutoring. Representatives will visit classes within the first few weeks of each semes-ter with information regarding the application process. The application form will look at: academic need, financial need, and motivation. If the student is successful, he/she will be contacted by the Lead Tutor, who will be overseeing the program.

Brainfuse is online tutoring for students in Grades 1-12. Once registered, students can log on and get immediate access to a live tutor who can provide them with one to one assistance with specific homework problems.

The Alex Youth Health Bus brings health care directly to youth who may otherwise face challenges accessing these services. The bus visits CMHS one day per week, including during exams. Staff on the bus use a holistic, compassionate approach to provide physical, emotional, psychological and social support for youth. Schedule and sign up available through the Wellness Centre.
