On November 3rd, RRC Polytech is hosting Movies for Mental Health, a virtual workshop that uses the power of film to unite folks in community, connection, and conversation.
This FREE event is delivered by a non-profit called Art With Impact and will be hosted online.
The interactive experience will feature a 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 and therapeutic activities to consciously connect minds and bodies.
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.
Students who attend and complete the post-event survey will be able to enter to win a prize! The winner of the prize draw will be able to choose between:
– One 90 minute float at Float.Calm (a $69 value), OR
– A $50 gift card to GoodLocal
Last year, students who attended found the workshop helped increase awareness of mental health, reduce stigma, and improve knowledge about where to go for help.
