The Africa Great Lakes Society's annual Pan-African Carnvial is taking place from August 23-25 at various locations around Vancouver (https://www.panafricancarnival.co).
This year's theme is "Mental Health". On the 23rd of August, prominent mental health experts - including B.C. Minister of Mental Health and Addiction Judy Darcy - will be joining us at the seminar to explore how cultural disparities within diasporic and indigenous communities provide challenges to mental health and the community's well-being.
This conference aims to provide attendees with an understanding of how to develop social connections and nurture a sense of communal belonging through the co-existence of cultural diversity and mental health.
