Lead Programming

Student panel

Join students from across Canada for a panel discussion and Q&A. Panelists will speak on mental health and well-being from a student lens, sharing experiences from their own educational journeys. Panelists will also highlight current challenges they see in post-secondary spaces as well as explore opportunities and solutions with fellow panelists and conference attendees.

Indigenous Elder panel

Panelists will discuss Indigenous perspectives on wellness. They will explore together how to co-create and contribute to supportive communities in post-secondary environments, as well as highlight barriers and explore solutions in delivering services to Indigenous communities and beyond.

Indigenous Counsellor panel

Featuring post-secondary Indigenous mental health and well-being professionals, this panel will discuss supporting student well-being informed by Indigenous traditions and ways of knowing and being. They will expand on therapeutic approaches and providing students in post-secondary with culturally appropriate services.

Panelists will also share their own experiences as Indigenous peoples as well as thoughts on what role settlers and non-Indigenous providers can play in providing relevant and safe spaces for Indigenous students.

Speakers and panelists announced shortly. Sign-up for our e-newsletter to be notified of updates.
