2017 Active Minds National Conference
Connection Through the Arts: Supporting Students’ Mental Wellness Through Media and Creativity
9:15 – 10:15 am | Room 413-414
Presenter: Cary McQueen, Executive Director, Art With Impact
In this interactive session, you will experience how arts-based programs can be used to help students address internalized stigma around mental illness. Watching films from the OLIVE Film collection and referencing data from over 130 recent campus events, you will gain tools for igniting powerful discussions on your campus, including creating a brave space, empowering students to define their own terms, and using short film to help students recognize that they’re not alone.
