Addressing Mental Health and Well-being by Creating Balanced and Supportive Post-Secondary Environments 1:00 pm
Addressing Mental Health and Well-being by Creating Balanced and Supportive Post-Secondary Environments @ Online
Jun 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Students that are transitioning from high school to post-secondary education can experience a great amount of stress (Sheng, 2017). According to the National Institute of Mental Health, routine stress can contribute to mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety. The majority of people entering or preparing for post-secondary education, 15-24 year olds, are more likely to experience mental illness than any other age group (CAMH, 2012). Many changes occur during this period that are unfamiliar and out of their control. In response to these statistics, specifically looking at young adults 18 years of age and older, and in the interest of evolving education practices with inclusive principles while improving well-being, this webinar will discuss how post-secondary institutions can provide a welcoming, holistic, and supportive environment, demonstrated by physical and sensorial elements. This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.

The Roshni Project Webinar: Highlighting the Lived Experience of South Asian Women 1:00 pm
The Roshni Project Webinar: Highlighting the Lived Experience of South Asian Women @ Online
Jun 27 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Presenter: Dr. Gursharan Virdee, psychologist and researcher at CAMH Learn about: The mental health realities of young South Asian women The roles of family, faith communities, educators, and mental health service providers The process and benefits of co-creation as a source of empowerment About the Roshni Project Following many years of hearing young South Asians in the Greater Toronto Area share challenges with accessing culturally-informed mental health supports and services, we came together to find a way to help. Young South Asian women in particular expressed a need to see a young South Asian mental health professional that ‘looked like’ them. Someone who understood what it was like to be a woman and straddle two completely different cultures — being Canadian and being South Asian. Through these dialogues emerged a number of gaps in the systems surrounding these young people, with the central and repeated theme being understood as a young South Asian and the role of gender in their experiences. This webinar is hosted by the Evidence Exchange Network (CAMH).
