#OVERWHELMED

13 MAY, 2017, TORONTO

WE ALL HAVE A JOURNEY

We all have a story to tell

Let this be the event where great minds meet to discuss the tools & road maps used to navigate our lives. In honor of mental health week, we have put together a conference that is right for YOU!

This conference is here to create a discussion on mental health through a transcultural and transgenerational lens. To incorporate all cultures and trangenerational trauma that effect first generation trauma survivors to the second and further generations of offspring.

In collaboration with the Youth of East Africa and University of Toronto’s ASA, youth from various communities  will have the opportunity to engage with therapists, social workers, and mental health advocates. These professionals and storytellers will be focusing on Mental Health through the lens of immigrant, first generation and TCK youths in the GTA.

#OVERWHELMED would like you to join us on MAY 13 2017 at the University of Toronto: 45 Willcocks ST. William Doo Auditorium for great food, amazing stories and to join our journey to end the stigma!
