Concordia Talks: Movies for Mental Health

Movies for Mental Health (Online) is a 1.5-hour virtual workshop that uses the power of film to unite folks in community, connection, and conversation.

This interactive, online experience will feature an anonymous, chat-based discussion on mental health, the stigma that frequently surrounds mental illness, and media portrayals of mental health issues.

Following this will be a live screening of three award-winning short films, therapeutic activities to consciously connect minds and bodies, and a collective exploration around what the work means for us as individuals.

The event will culminate in a panel of lived-experience speakers and mental health resources, empowering us to share our own stories and access support available to us in these uncertain times.

This event is FREE and open to students, staff and faculty!
