Launch of the Mental Health & Well-Being Research & Training Hub
December 10, 2020
The Mental Health and Well-being Research and Training Hub (MeWeRTH) is composed of researchers, students, and community partners with a shared interest in mental health, well-being, and resilience. MeWeRTH is a virtual space housed within the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Carleton University.
To celebrate its official launch, MeWeRTH will be hosting a virtual Hub Showcase on Thursday, December 10th, from 2:30pm – 4:00 p.m. The theme for the Showcase is Translating mental health and well-being research: Being well amid COVID-19. Hub members will present their research and discuss how it can be applied to daily life to stay well amidst the pandemic. Especially during these times, it is critical that we translate our research in way that is accessible and useable to improve the daily lives of our community. Topics include solitude, gambling, the benefits of urban greenness on depression and sleep quality, using nature to cope, work-life balance, and substance use.
We hope that you can join us. The event is free, and all are welcome to attend. To learn more and to register for the event, please visit https://carleton.ca/mental-health/cu-events/hub-showcase-launch-event/.
