On Thursday, January 26, 2023, the HCC will be hosting its annual, mental health event: Let’s Talk UTM!
Let’s Talk UTM Day aims to bring together students, staff, and faculty in an effort to promote open conversations around mental health. By sharing the stories and lived experiences of members of our community, we hope to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and mental health, and help make UTM a more open and inclusive campus environment. Through a combination of interactive activities, open discussions, and storytelling, we will highlight the importance of mental health and its relevance to everyday life.
This year, Let’s Talk UTM Day will run from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm in the CCT Atrium. The event will be fully in-person, and will feature:
- Stories of Resiliency Virtual Photo Exhibit
- Mental Health Resource Fair
- Peer-led activities and conversations
- and more!
