Spend an evening with experts as they unravel the connections amongst societal structures, mental illness and loneliness, and on how to be resilient in a stressed culture.
The student experience is often marked by the struggle for mental health and the battle to escape loneliness. Many have trouble 'finding passion' or feel like they lack purpose, trying to 'find themselves'. Their struggles are often perceived as personal issues, problems they need to seek help for or to Band-Aid. This widespread isolation and high rates of mental illness ought to make us reflect on the society that produces them in hopes of building communities and organizations that not only prevent these issues but promote participation and health.
The conference features two of the most globally renowned mental health professionals, Dr. Gabor Mate and Professor Adele Diamond, along with musical performances, art pieces, workshops, and a wonderful host.
