Outside the Box: Mental Health & Well-Being
Wednesday, February 24, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
– How do your various interlocking identities influence your mental health?
– How has your sexuality affected which counseling services you have access to and meet your specific needs?
– How can we create spaces that are more accessible to our emotional and mental needs?
At this week’s Outside the Box, we will be discussing how our mental health may be influenced by our racial, sexual, and gender identities. We will look at how various systems within and outside our interpersonal circles influence our emotional well-being, and what we can do about it. We will discuss our experiences with mental health services both on campus and in the GTA, and share self-care tools we employ to take care of ourselves and our communities.
