The Kaleidoscope is proud to have been a part of the founding of the UBC Mental Health Network. The Network hopes to bring together the various mental health-related initiatives at UBC in order to share resources, work together on projects, connect ideas, and promote mental health on campus. We are having a meeting on Thursday, May 26th 4:30PM at the Wellness Centre in the SUB. At present, anybody who is interested in being a part of this is welcome to come to our meetings and see what we’ve got in the works!
It looks like we are gaining some momentum with The Kaleidoscope initiative. Check out this article that made it onto the UBC ArtsWire magazine today: The Kaleidoscope opens up about mental illness
