CICMH launches two Conversations over Coffee videos featuring student leaders in Ontario
Toronto, July. 30, 2018 – The Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health (CICMH) has been busy this summer launching two new videos featuring student leaders from student organizations.
Pearlyn NG from CICMH sat down with representatives from Jack.org for the first video to discuss their organizations growing role in helping campuses organize and raise awareness of mental health issues as well as reduce stigma on campus.
The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, and the College Student Alliance joined CICMH for the second video to provide their organizations perspectives on managing and championing mental health on both college and university campuses.
Both of the videos are roughly 20 mins long and tackle topics ranging from how students can become engaged on campuses, latest issues being faced by students and student leaders, and opportunities to engage with the new Ontario Government.
You can find the videos online on the campusmentalhealth.ca website along with other videos in the Conversations over Coffee series.
“We are very excited to launch these very informative videos as student leaders play such an important role in campus mental health.” said Marija Padjen, Director of CICMH. “I encourage everyone to watch them out and keep an eye out for future videos focused on helping campuses enhance their capacity to serve students”
