SUMMERSIDE — A website that offers resources to parents, students and the community, focusing on the total health and wellbeing of children, was launched Monday by the P.E.I. Home and School Federation.

The “Help My Child” website was launched Monday. Taking part in the launch were Quentin Bevan (left), Telus Community Foundation Board; Ann Miller (seated), Englewood Home and School Association; Pam Montgomery, P.E.I. Home and School Federation; and Steve Miller, Donagh Home and School Association.

The aim of the “Help My Child” site is to connect individuals in need of help with the right person, professional or other type of resource.

“Through many conversations and discussions with parents and teachers we realized accessing information and supports needed to help our children was a time consuming challenge,” said federation president Pam Montgomery. “The P.E.I. Home and School Federation sought to create a portal website that we hope will make accessing important information easier and timely.”

Areas of help are included under categories such as bullying, cyberbullying, educational supports, mental health, physical health, substance abuse, violence and abuse. 

There is also help available for a wide range of issues and areas, from substance abuse to study and homework.

Another helpful feature is the “not sure where to look” section.

Here, questions can be submitted through the website and redirected to find the right person or resource so that the person asking the question can find a solution.

Financial assistance for the project came from the Telus Community Foundation.
