Join us to explore how cultural traditions, values, and practices can play a pivotal role in coping with and overcoming mental health barriers. We will dive deep into the profound connection between culture and mental health, exploring how cultural traditions, values, and practices can empower individuals to overcome mental health challenges.
This is a time for conversation – to share feelings, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear! If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)
About the format. With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
