Regina Youth Manage Stress and Anxiety with a Little Help from FRIENDS.

More than 120 Regina Grade 4 and 6 students have been given some new “FRIENDS” to help them better cope with stress, as part of a pilot program in Regina Public Schools.

The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region and Regina Public Schools teamed up this school year to offer an innovative pilot program to 122 students in Grades 4 and 6, giving them tools to help reduce and better manage stress, anxiety and depression. The program is funded by the RBC Foundation through its five-year Believe in Kids pledge.
