Understanding Mental Health and Wellness in Times of Stress
The COVID-19 pandemic suddenly changed our lives in countless ways, leading to increased stress, worry, and challenge for all of us. In these difficult times, it’s also important to build a deeper understanding of the human mind, wellness, and mental health. A recent Angus Reid survey shows that 50% of people feel their mental health has become a little or a lot worse since the pandemic began.
Dr. Shimi Kang takes audiences on a fascinating journey through the latest neuroscience, medical research, and practical tools to help leaders, teams, and organizations achieve better wellness, motivation, adaptability, and innovation to best meet the demands of the weeks and months to come.
Building Momentum with the National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students Panel Discussion
The National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students—the first of its kind in the world—is a set of flexible, voluntary guidelines to help post-secondary institutions support the mental health and well-being of their students. This voluntary Standard builds on the exceptional work of Canada's post-secondary institutions and seeks to inspire further actions through evidence-based and principle-led approaches.
As post-secondary communities continue to adapt and transform, the Standard offers a platform for collaboration while helping institutions prioritize and respond to their most pressing opportunities and challenges.
Join the MHCC and leaders in post-secondary education to share ideas and gain insights for the upcoming academic year!
Moderated by Donovan Taplin
A diverse student panel discussion and Q&A will anchor campus mental health and wellness from a student lens. Panelists will include students at various stages in their own educational journey, representing different geographic regions for a candid conversation on the experiences, challenges, and opportunities of students in the post-secondary environment.
Please note that presentations times are in MST. All sessions will be recorded and available post-conference for viewing.
