    April 14, 2021  1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Itis no doubt that academics (and staff in academic environments) deal with a lotof pressure and are more likely to suffer depression, anxiety and otherpsychiatric disorder. It is also with no doubt that COVID-19 pandemic added awhole new level of struggle and anxiety to academics; some of us foundourselves caring for children/elder full-time, struggling to finish experimentson time due to limited work capacity, or feeling fully isolated due to variouslockdown measures - all while trying to do our jobs and keep ourselves afloat.Yet, mental health topics remain a taboo in academia. At CSB, only 24% ofgraduate students say they are comfortable sharing their mental healthstruggles with their PIs, and similar trend among faculty members. Asacademics, educators, parents, friends, we owe it to ourselves to be more awareof mental health struggles, so we can help ourselves and colleagues in ourcommunity when they struggle. This seminar will cover literacy informationabout mental health and the different disorders that many academics face intheir career, and will touch on some strategies to regain wellbeing amidst aglobal pandemic.

     

    Whenis this seminar happening?

     GSAS will participate in the second Canada-wide university trivia championship with several graduate associations across the country! This is an exciting opportunity for everyone, and w hope you'll sign up if you're interested. Here are the details:

    Teams: 3-5 Members (If your team has less than 5 members, free agents may be assigned to your team)
    Team Logistics: Each team must have a designated Team Captain who is responsible for filling out this form. Please include the names, student numbers, and email addresses of the members you are registering for your team.
    Max Amount of Teams: 10
    *This sign-up will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis, with 8 team spots available and 2 team spaces reserved for free agent sign-ups. Should there be 5 or fewer free agents sign up, the 9th team to register will be selected to play. We recognize that for a trivia-centred school such as UTSC these spots may fill quickly; however, we are also excited to see how many associations/teams sign up. A running list of who signs up will be kept and if each association opens up more spots for teams then your designated Team Captains will be notified.*

    How to Play: Once the teams are selected, instructions for playing will be emailed to your team, though we will be using a combination of Zoom and Mentimeter!
    Prizes: There will be individual prizes for each member of the winning team, a prize for the top team at each school, and several raffle prizes will be selected throughout the night for trivia players to win!

    If you have any questions or concerns then please email GSAS' Social Events Chair at andreea.bosorogan@mail.utoronto.ca. We look forward to seeing your UTSC spirit on display this April!!
