Description:

How Do You Thrive?

As the 2017 Pieces of Mind Mental Health Conference falls within KPU’s upcoming Thrive Week, we will be exploring this question as our conference theme. Thrive Week is a movement across a number of Canadian post-secondary institutions directed at building positive health and well-being for students, staff, and faculty alike. And so, the Peer Support Team has endeavored to develop a program that will allow attendees and presenters to learn from each other and develop their answers for the question, “How Do You Thrive?”

DATE: Tuesday, October 24, 2017

TIME: Sign-in at 10:30 a.m. | Conference 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

LOCATION: Surrey Conference Center, Cedar Building

The conference program includes a set of student speakers, community organizations, an exhibit and an engaging Keynote, Joshua Rivedal, who creatively integrates theatre into his presentations on mental health (for more info on Joshua, check out his website at joshuarivedal.com). The hope is that all attendees will walk away with more knowledge and tools in their self-care toolkit to help them and those they know to thrive in various aspects of their lives.

About the Peer Support Program

The Peer Support Program is a partnership between the Kwantlen Student Association (KSA) and Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) that offers students one-on-one peer support, and referrals to various Kwantlen and community resources. Students are invited to seek the support they need, and will have the opportunity to talk about challenges they may be facing. The primary goal of the Peer Support Program is to enhance the social, emotional, and academic experiences of students at KPU. Its secondary goals are to promote wellness within the university community and to enhance student-to-student support. Peer Support aims to improve the range and diversity of options available to students struggling with mental health issues as well as those who may be overwhelmed or distressed.
