Jack.org Queen’s Chapter created “Built to Bear” kits for first year students, encouraging self-care, providing study tips and a flow chart of mental health resources at Queen’s. As well, we partnered with the Tea Room for “Sleeve the Stigma Behind,” an initiative using coffee sleeves and puns to bring mental health awareness into people’s everyday routines. We took part in the Jack Summit by hosting a Satellite Summit at Queen’s and participating in the mental health brainstorms. In between these events, we attended events/initiatives we were invited to be present at and planned future events.
Jack.org Queen’s Chapter aims to raise awareness and start conversations about mental health. 1 in 5 people will struggle with mental illness but 5 in 5 people have mental health, our goal is to reach the 5 in 5 and break the stigma surrounding mental health.
