FRANKLY SPEAKING Event: Mental Health Literacy | Oct 11, 2016. Register by Oct 4

Join Dr. Blye Frank, Dean of UBC’s Faculty of Education for his inaugural FRANKLY SPEAKING event. In the spirit of ideas worth advancing, the theme will be Mental Health Literacy. One in five Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime and mental health issues affect up to half the total student population at many universities. Mental health literacy encompasses the knowledge, beliefs and abilities that enable the recognition, management or prevention of mental health problems with a range of benefits including prevention, early recognition and intervention, and reduction of stigma associated with mental illness.

FRANKLY SPEAKING provides alumni and friends of  UBC’s Faculty of Education with the opportunity to hear from prominent speakers on featured topics relevant to the field of education.
