“You are too anxious, get it together! Stop being so sensitive!”
We hear these negative conversations around mental health, at work, university campuses and at home. In any given year, 1 in 5 people in Canada personally experience a mental health problem or illness. Many don't seek help because of stigma. Join WiSER on September 26, 2019 as we provide a platform for openly talking about mental health, how to reduce the stigma, and how we all can help to be more aware (whether around your friends, colleagues, or just yourself) of mental health.
This event is the first of WiSER's professional development series in this academic year. You are also invited to our "Mindful Yoga" (free of charge) after the event. There are limited spots for the yoga session!
Light refreshments and healthy beverages will be provided. This event many be counted towards professional development hours for both graduate students and professionals.*
5:30 pm: Keynote (TBA)
6:30 pm: Mindful Yoga (Optional. You must register for Workshop+Yoga at tickets checkout) (Room TBA)
