Event description

Description

The Recognize, Render and Redirect event hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, aims to better equip faculty members with the tools they need to support student mental health. Keynote speaker, Dr. Maria-Lucia Di Placito will speak to her work that encourages instructors to recognize students in their classes who may be facing mental health challenges, to render equitable supports that facilitate the student’s successful course completion, and/or to redirect students to appropriate resources. Dr. Di Placito’s talk will be followed by a panel of speakers including:

  • Dr. Lorne Prupas, Associate Director, Counselling Services, SFU
  • Alisa Stanton, Associate Director Health Promotion (Acting), SFU
  • Monique Sekhon and Marco Zenone, Student members, SFU Student Health Advisory Committee
  • Michelle Horn, Co-Program Coordinator, Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre
  • The event takes place in front of a live audience on April 23rd, 10am-12:30pm, composed primarily of SFU faculty at SFU Harbour Centre (HC 2270).

This event has been organized by Dr. Sharon Koehn and Dr. Milan Singh. The event has been funded and supported by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. For any inquiries or comments, please contact Milan Singh at milan_singh@sfu.ca
