Bell Let’s Talk Day is Wednesday, January 26

This marks Lakehead's 5th year participating in Bell Let’s Talk Day. The day provides a timely opportunity to build on increased awareness around mental health and mental illness and to inspire Canadians to keep playing an active role in moving mental health forward in Canada as a priority issue. For the 2022 campaign, we are encouraging the Lakehead community to keep listening, talking and being there for themselves and each other.

Send your words of encouragement to one another by taking a photo in the virtual photo booth or take time to support your own well-being by doing one of the Bell Let's Talk wellness activities.

To learn about how you can support the Bell Let's Talk initiative by visiting their website.

Looking to cozy up with a good book over the winter break or have a goal of reading more for pleasure in the new year? Join Student Health and Wellness' book club.

Joining is completely free and open to all students; all you need is a copy of the book. Book club members will connect through a discord channel where participants can weigh in on the book and have a live zoom meeting. The club will read one book every 5-6 weeks, giving everyone plenty of time to enjoy each selection. You will be invited to offer your input on upcoming book selections. You can also skip a book at any time (this is for stress relief after all!).

Our read will be Anxious People by Fredrik Backman and we will set up a meeting at the end of January to share our thoughts about the book.
