Stop the Stigma Sympsium​

IMG_1377 (1).JPG 
St. Timothy's Intermediate 'Stop the Stigma' Leaders had the opportunity to attend the TCDSB Annual Student Mental Health Symposium at the Hart House, University of Toronto. The day highlighted the importance of mental health awareness and helping to stop the stigma that those with mental illness often experience. 
Students had the opportunity to listen to singer/songwriter, Sara Westbrook, who shared her personal story of disappointment and focused on how she changed her life to one of positive empowerment. Some students attended a Hip Hop workshop run by UNITY, while others listened to Patrick De Balen (a spoken word artist) and learned how to use Spoken Word as a tool for social advocacy. Overall, the day was a success and this leadership group is looking forward to sharing thier knowledge with other students in our school community!
