Access to adequate mental health resources plays a crucial role in maintaining our health and resilience as university students, especially amidst the additional stress, isolation and uncertainty brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. But do SFU students know where to turn to access mental health support?
Join SFU Public Square’s Peer Educators for a two-day pop-up event at SFU's Burnaby and Surrey campuses. The Mental Wellness Pop-Up is a fun and creative space for SFU students to talk about mental health and accessibility. Activities include:
- Participating in fun artistic activities including origami and mood boarding
- Learning about mental health resources available to SFU students
- Sharing your thoughts in a survey* on how SFU can better support students’ mental health
- Winning prizes like coffee vouchers and self-care products
- Cozying up around a fire pit with s'mores in Convocation Mall (Burnaby)
- Enjoying free cookies and donuts from Renaissance Coffee (Burnaby)
This pop-up event is a chance to come together to de-stress, destigmatize conversations about mental health, and raise our voices about what support we need. We hope you’ll join us!
Hosted in partnership with SFU Health & Counselling, SFU Student Services, and SFU Student Engagement and Retention.
