USSU Help Centre – Mental Health Week

Let’s Talk Mental Health and Illness. Mental Health Week is back!
Mental health can often be a difficult and broad topic. Many factors can affect your mental health. Often you may not feel like there are any reasons. You are not crazy, or lazy, or spoiled for feeling mentally unwell. Your mental health isn’t insignificant just because someone has it worse than you. Although mental health is still highly stigmatized, we want you to know it is okay to get help and it is okay to talk about it. Join us for Mental Health Week to learn about different aspects of mental health. Each day we will cover a different theme of mental health and each day we will have a speaker surrounding that topic! We will also be posting information around each theme throughout the day so stay updated on all the information on our Help Centre page or our Instagram @USSUHelpCentre.
Below is the theme of each day as well as the speakers for the day. Just click the Eventbrite link and register for the presentation. It is all digital and free! Descriptions of each event are provided in the Eventbrite page.

· Doubling government investments in Canada Student Grants
· Establishing a two-year grace period on all federal loans
