The Mental Health: Awareness and Action video conference explores the universality of mental illness and its various challenges to mental health. Understanding symptoms and methods in which to manage mental illnesses are important tools in achieving a healthy state of psychological well-being. Topics such as stress, stigma and mental disorders are explored to provide students with a foundation for learning about the various causes and methods of handling stressors in an inclusive environment. Ahead of the event, participating students will join international peers to learn about mental health in a safe, interactive and content-rich online classroom which will provide a base for the conference.
