Pop the Stigma – Mental Health Awareness Week

October 16, 2017 @ 10:00 am - October 20, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

CUSA Presents: Pop the Stigma

POP THE STIGMA IS A MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK THAT OCCURS EVERY YEAR AT CARLETON UNIVERSITY. IT IS ORGANIZED BY THE CARLETON UNIVERSITY STUDENT’S ASSOCIATION (CUSA), AND HAS TWO MAIN GOALS: POP THE STIGMA SURROUNDING MENTAL HEALTH AND CONNECTING THE CARLETON UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY WITH RESOURCES.

The Pop the Stigma programming include a two day resource fair at the beginning of the week, mindfulness and mental wellness related workshops, mental illness and resilience related educational talks and well as mental wellness programming including therapy animals, paint therapy and yoga.

Do not miss the opportunity to get involved! Engaging in the week activities, attending the amazing workshops, taking part in the social media campaign and volunteering are just some of the many ways you can participate and help end the stigma surrounding mental health.

We will be in the atrium all week raising awareness and facilitating fun activities such as the Balloon Project. Join us in spreading the message and don’t miss the chance to earn cool prizes by participating in the Pop Trivia!
