Access & Barriers around Wellness Resources at UBC // Long-table discussion & listening session with Ainsley Carry, VP Students

Registration required. Please RSVP using form below.
Event is free and open to all.

We acknowledge and are thankful that this event will take place on the traditional, unceded, ancestral homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.

Join us for a facilitated, student-centered, long-table discussion where students are invited to share connections, ideas, and thoughts around the topic of access and barriers around mental health and wellness resources on campus. What are examples of resources that have supported your wellbeing at UBC? What kinds of mental health and wellness resources and supports can you imagine for students on campus?

This discussion will focus on student experiences, as we will be joined by Ainsley Carry (VP Students, UBC). Ainsley will introduce himself and listen to the ideas shared by discussion participants.

Given the discussion topic, please note that this event will centre students of colour, with particular focus towards students broadly defined as being within Asian Canadian communities. We invite all to attend (including staff and faculty), while being mindful of what it means to engage in a space of respectful and conscientious dialogue.

There is a gender- and wheelchair-accessible washroom on the first floor of the building, to the left of Starbucks, behind the wall with an elevator on it. Washroom includes individual stalls and communal sink area.
