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.
