Get Involved

Hi-FIVE is student-run and student-led. We work with staff at Health & Counselling to learn and get support and we work together to have important conversations across campus. Get involved by joining the movement - there are a lot of ways to help eliminate stigma on campus.

Attend our events

We regularly host events as a chance to destress, connect, and learn with others. Part of destigmatizing conversation is about creating opportunities to have important conversations about mental health and well-being so keep an eye out for upcoming events! See what's happening

Keep learning, listening, and creating opportunities

We can contribute to the movement and reduce stigma every day by creating opportunities in our own families and friend groups to prioritize and talk about mental health and well-being. We don't have to be experts about mental illness but we can listen and learn why it's important to reduce stigma in our communities.
