Concordia’s Student Services hosted the first-ever Let’s Talk: Mental Health and Wellness Week from February 10 to 14, 2014.

From stress management to obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), the range of subjects explored in the Week's workshops were designed to encourage conversations about a variety of mental and emotional health concerns that can affect students’ personal and academic success.

The Student Services Health and Wellness Fair on February 12 featured key resources — it aimed to offer everything grads and undergrads need to know about mental and emotional well-being in one location. It also showcased the various on-campus services available to students, staff and faculty.

The key message was “You are not alone.”

Don’t hesitate to seek out assistance on campus. Your Student Services are here to help.
