Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to join in the discussion on mental health at UVic's 3rd Annual Mental Health Awareness Event hosted by the Division of Student Affairs in partnership with the UVSS.
November 17th we introduced our community to Connections Place and to mental health leaders from Washington State and Richmond BC. A huge thank you to everyone who made this possible: Hudson Mack for your wonderful talent of introductions and Board Member and Saanich Councillor Fred Haynes who outlined the need for this program to supplement what already exists and to help address the gaps.
After years of painfully watching children fall through the cracks in our so-called mental health system in BC, a group of Victoria mothers are advocating for a new approach.
Last week, a group called Moms Like Us hosted an over-flowing meeting about an intriguing new model for community-based mental-health supports.
