      2019 Pieces of Mind Mental Health Conference

      2019 PIECES OF MIND MENTAL HEALTH CONFERENCE: "Playing with Anxiety"  Conceptualized in 2015, the annual Pieces of Mind Mental Health Conference hosted by the KSA's Peer Support Program and the Kwantlen Student Association, serves as a platform for conference attendees to learn more about and contribute to conversations around mental health.Our primary goal is to initiate discussions and foster an exchange of ideas with the purpose of promoting greater well-being on our campuses and communities. Our conference theme this year is, Playing with Anxiety. Our goal with this year’s theme is to offer a different way to view and talk about anxiety. We understand that it is not always possible to get rid of our anxiety or to avoid all situations that may be anxiety-inducing. With this in mind, we would like to offer an event whereby people feel empowered to learn about the resources and strategies to help them manage their anxiety -- and maybe even play a little -- so that everyone can live their lives to the fullest! REGISTER TODAY to reserve a conference goodie bag, food and raffle tickets! Carnival Style Info-Fair From performances to games, interactive activity stations, food prizes, and more, join in on all the fun and festivities at our Carnival Style Info-Fair!

Stop by each table or try your hand at some of the activities and earn some stamps for your “Passport to POM”. The more stamps you collect, the more entries you will have for our big raffle draw where you could win self-care baskets, gift cards, cool experiences and more!    Speaker Series Our speaker series will include a wide range of individuals whose personal and professional experiences will shape our discussions at POM. To start, we will have two student speakers share their mental health stories, particularly, around their experiences living with anxiety. During the Panel Discussion, mental health professionals, community organizations, and students, will answer questions related to their work and personal experiences in the field. To close our conference, we are honoured to have Anxiety BC offer an exciting, interactive Keynote Presentation. SCHEDULED WILL BE UPLOADED SOON
