Regards, Jo-ann

Students will learn about Mental Health and Wellness, gain valuable professional development, and find out how they can access resources through the UBC Wellness Centre and other local support services. Topics include (but not limited to) Self-Care and Boundaries, Providing Support to Students in Distress, Respectful Relationships within Aboriginal Communities, and Building a Support System.
