This webinar will evaluate the current challenges related to mental health on post-secondary campuses in the context of COVID-19. How we can support ourselves and our community as we enter a new academic year will be discussed, as well as how to navigate community and campus resources.
By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- Summarize any learnings since the beginning of the pandemic in terms of mental health
- Understand the mental health issues that might arise as we return to campus
- Identify with participants how to incorporate self-care strategies, and find campus and community resources to support mental health
- Discuss how we can support loved ones and our communities that have been isolated, or otherwise in distress over the past year and a half
