The Community Education program is currently recruiting Youth Educators for our upcoming training

Youth Educators promote mental wellness among youth by facilitating interactive high school workshops on Mindfulness-Based Stress Management and Suicide Awareness and Response.  This is a great opportunity to work with students in grades 8-12 in a fun and prevention-focused capacity.

  • Wednesday, April 3rd – 7:00 pm
  • Tuesday, April 16th – 7:00 pm
  • Monday, April 29th – 7:00 pm

Please contact Tiffany Robinson to register: (604)872-1811 ext.234 or email trobinson@crisiscentre.bc.ca

The Crisis Centre is located at 763 East Broadway, Vancouver.

UBC THRIVE 2010

UBC Thrive is an annual, week-long series of events that encourages the UBC Community to invest in healthier living, promote mental wellness, and reduce the stigma surrounding this topic.  This year, Thrive is happening from Nov 1-5.

The Kaleidoscope is going to be hosting a screening and discussion event titled “Portrayals of Madness” to address how mental illness is showcased in cinema.  In this session we will show a variety of film clips and intersperse them with open discussion.  All members of the UBC community are invited to join us on next Tuesday, November 2nd from 6.30-7.30 pm in BUCH A203.
