About one in five Canadians identify as having a disability, and 60 per cent of youth between the ages of 15 and 24 with disabilities report having issues with their mental health.
A presentation Tuesday, March 29, will provide an overview of mental health supports for UWindsor students and employees. The final entry in the 2022 Accessibility Awareness Days series, the session also promises tips for managing pandemic stress from Mohsan Beg of the Student Counselling Centre and Marcela Ciampa of Human Resources.
It will run 11:30 a.m. to noon on Microsoft Teams. Click on this link to register.
Those unable to attend the live event may find recordings afterward on the Accessibility Awareness Days website.
Accessibility manager Cherie Gagnon of the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility says this year’s webinars have attracted favourable comment.
“Participation has been good and people who weren’t able to attend have been happy to have access to the recorded session to watch when they are able,” she says. “People have written to say that they appreciate the short, 30-minute sessions that provide tangible takeaways.
“It’s great to have engagement from across the campus community working together to promote accessibility.”
