Mental Health Podcast Debut!

Hey everyone!

Here’s our debut episode for the Social Innovation Hub’s Podcast. The theme this round is Mental Health. It’s become more and more apparent that mental health is an issue among Canadians. Campaigns like Bell’s “Let’s Talk” and the Partners in Mental Health’s “Do Right by You” are bringing this issue to the forefront and helping to really get the conversation started. Our province and our campus are a part of that movement and in this episode, we talk about what’s been going on for us at the college.

As promised in the podcast, here are some links to mental initiatives on campus and elsewhere if you’re interested in getting involved.

    Thank you so much for your excellent Podcasts. They provide a great deal of information concerning mental health and mental illness. New students entering George Brown College will find this information very valuable and learn there are many resources in the College to assist them.
