Mental Wellness + You

Join us in a conversation about student mental health. We all know how stressed and anxious students can feel. At Empower The Future, we frequently receive questions like: "How do I manage working a part-time job and going to school full-time?" or "Is post-secondary school THAT stressful?" So we decided to help them.

Students are welcome to engage in a conversation with individuals about mental health. Learn about different mental illnesses, symptoms, and treatments.
