Description

“How Do You Thrive?” - As the 2017 Pieces of Mind Mental Health Conference falls within KPU’s Thrive Week, we will be exploring this question as our conference theme. Thrive Week is a movement across a number of Canadian post-secondary institutions directed at building positive health and well-being for students, staff, and faculty alike. And so, the Peer Support Team has endeavoured to develop a program that will allow attendees and presenters to learn from each other and develop their answers for the question, “How Do You Thrive?”

The conference program includes a set of student speakers, community organizations, an exhibit and an engaging Keynote speaker, Joshua Rivedal, who creatively integrates theatre into his presentations on mental health (for more info on Joshua, check out his website at http://www.joshuarivedal.com/). During the exhibit portion of the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to partake in interactive activities with members of the Peer Support Team as well as collect resources and information from various on and off campus organizations. The hope is that all attendees will walk away with more knowledge and tools in their self-care toolkit to help them and those they know, thrive in various aspects of their lives.
