Mental Wellness Open Dialogue for the OCAD U Community

How can we create a campus that not only supports mental wellness, but a campus that also allows for students, faculty and staff to thrive? We want students to direct our work in making positive changes on campus. And we want those changes to work for students.

The OCAD U Mental Health Steering Committee invites all OCAD U students, faculty and staff to join us for refreshments and an in-depth conversation about Mental Health on campus at our second Open Dialogue where everyone can safely express their vision and ideas for a healthy and vibrant campus.

The vision of OCAD U’s Mental Health Steering Committee is to inspire and nurture healthy and imaginative learners, educators and cultured citizens of the world. We are composed of students, faculty and staff of OCAD University.

This event will be facilitated by spoken word/dub poet, writer, artist, activist and OCAD University creative writing professor Lillian Allen. There will be food, good people and good vibes. Join us for the conversation!
