Red River College Polytechnic is hosting two Movies for Mental Health workshops that use the power of film to unite folks in community, connection, and conversation. These free events are delivered by a non-profit called Art With Impact, and will be hosted in person!
The interactive experience will feature safe discussion on mental health, the stigma that frequently surrounds mental illness, and media portrayals of mental health issues. There will also be snacks. 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 participants to share our own stories and access support available at the College and in the community.
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.
