Mental Health and Wellness Week: Nov. 17 to 20

Published on Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014

Mental Health Awareness Week 2014Get involved in Georgian’s Mental Health and Wellness Week Nov. 17 to 21 and help raise awareness about mental health issues on campus. While one in five people may experience mental health issues in their lifetime, five in five are impacted (all of us).

It’s time to start talking more about our emotional distress and for all of us to make it safe and comfortable to do so. It’s time to take off the mask at Georgian, the mask of “everything is ok.” It will save lives. Georgian students and staff are not immune to the risk of suicide. Did you know that suicide remains the second leading cause of death for young adults?

The Mental Health and Wellness Committee has organized a range of activities across Georgian campuses this year to promote wellness, encourage conversations and provide new information about mental health. An official launch will take place at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at the Orillia Campus. Three presenters – including a student and an alumnus – will share their personal stories of recovery, followed by a psychiatrist who will speak about the importance of mental health on campus. The launch will be videotaped and posted on the college’s website so all of our community has a chance to view it.

Calendars of planned activities will be posted at various campuses and on the website.
