Thrive Week: Friendship Bench Unveiling
Start Date: 1/31/2018Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 1/31/2018End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
Join Bridging the Gap and the Student Wellness Centre as we hold a ceremony to officially unveil Laurier's new Friendship Bench!

The Friendship Bench is a structure that will serve as a permanent, physical, and year-round reminder to students to take a moment out of their day to sit, breathe, and talk (or think) about their mental health and that of their friends. It’s intended to inspire peer-to-peer conversations about mental health in order to reduce the stigma and encourage more students seek help.

The plaque on the bench links students to, which provides links to the mental health support services on and off-campus.

The ceremony takes places in the foyer between the Student Wellness Centre and Paul Martin Centre and is part of Thrive, our week-long series of events focusing on building positive mental health on campus!

Cupcakes will be seved. Thank you to David's Tea for providing us with herbal tea!
