THEMUSEUM + Manulife presents: Movies 4 Mental Health

In collaboration with Manulife and THEMUSEUM, AWI Canada co-hosted a FREE community event “Movies for Mental Health,” an interactive workshop that uses the transformative power of short film to initiate dialogue with community on the topic of mental health. This event was two hours long and consisted of food, a facilitated discussion, three short films from Art With Impact’s winning library, and a resource panel with students sharing stories of resilience, and service providers sharing details around accessing community services.
