I can imagine how busy you all are with this semester. I hope you feel settled in your program and things are working out.
The CCSAI was very active for the past couple of weeks executing all the great events and activities that we had planned. My hope is that you came and enjoyed those BBQs, socialized with your friends at BeerFest and played on the big giant inflatables. I want to say a very big thank you to all those who came out at our welcome events as we raised over $2,300 for the Terry Fox foundation!
Well, the fun doesn’t end here. This was just the beginning. Casino nights, road trips, Halloween Haunt, Garba, Mental Health Awareness Week and many more things are planned for the upcoming months.
If you have any questions or concerns I will be happy to meet you or chat with you. I can be reached by phone or email.
The CCSAI partnered with the College Student Alliance (CSA) for the YUP Campaign, an initiative to spread awareness about mental health. We want to show support to stop the stigma, help students cope with stress, manage mental health and make them aware of what resources are available on campus.
The Canadian Mental Health Association says that 49% of those who feel they have suffered from depression or anxiety have NEVER gone to see a doctor about this problem.
