Mental Wellness Week

February 8, 2016 @ 8:00 am - February 12, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Mental Wellness Week is February 8th -12th and we want to help students and community members ‘Pop the Stigma’ that surrounds discussions about mental health and wellness. Throughout the week there will be many ways for students to learn that they are not alone when dealing with mental wellness. These activities will show students the different ways they can help themselves and others confront mental health issues. The events planned include free yoga and meditation classes, slam poetry, therapy dogs and workshops.

Our keynote speaker Frank Warren, from Post Secret, will cap off a week designed to remove the negative stigmas that surround mental health issues and those who seek help. By coming together and talking about our experiences, we as a community can help ‘Pop the Stigma’ surrounding mental health issues.

Brought to you by the University of Regina Students’ Union (URSU) , the URSU Student Advocate, the University of Regina, the University of Regina Counselling Services, the University of Regina Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, , the University of Regina Faculty of Arts, , the University of Regina Faculty of Education, the Paul J.
