Our Space Too: A Conversation about Mental Wellness in Newcomer Youth Communities

Event Details

Join OCIC’s Youth Policy-Makers to talk about mental wellness in newcomer youth communities The OCIC Youth Policy-Makers Hub presents #OurSpaceToo, a workshop for newcomer (immigrant and refugee) youth and a safe space to foster informative and personal dialogue about mental wellness in their communities.

This will be an opportunity for education and awareness, collective relationship building, and a space to practice wellness. We will be discussing issues around how newcomer youth are getting or could get involved in the international development sector, anti-racism, stigma around mental health, increasing awareness about available resources and sharing self-care strategies.

There are two available workshop dates: August 20, 2020 and August 27, 2020, both from 6:00 to 7:30 pm (EDT). Participants are encouraged to attend one of the sessions as the workshop content will be the same on both dates.
