Student Life, Mental Health, and an Upcoming Talk


As someone who dedicated 9 years of their life to post-secondary education, I understand all too well that being in school isn’t all parties, pranks and fun. Being a student in our modern age can be highly stressful; the pressure to perform can be high, competition for post-graduate opportunities is fierce, and adapting to a more independent life away from home can be tough.

The media in recent years has been full of stories about the rising rates of student anxiety, depression, suicide, and other mental health concerns. Students often don’t know where to turn for help, and overwhelmed, in-demand student services and programs are not always accessible when they’re needed.

I’d like to help, which is why I’m offering a talk for students on January 19th and 20th on strategies for managing stress and boosting mood and brain power naturally. Join me for an hour and learn how to get out of survival mode, and into a thriving student life. Yes, even during finals! Whether you’re a high school, college, or university student, this talk will give you some practical tools to succeed.

The talks will be held at Sage Wellness on Tuesday January 19th from 7-8 pm, and again on Wednesday the 20th from 12-1 pm.
