The UWinnipeg Psychology Students’ Association, in collaboration with the UWinnipeg’s Psychology’s Department Assistant, are thrilled to launch a psychology-themed film/documentary series at the University. The series’ unique title and logo (at left) unite the word “alone” with the phrase “all one,” along with the psi symbol stylized to suggest a person with outreached hands, to convey the idea that even though one may feel alone as one struggles with a mental illness or psychological duress, one can reach out and connect with people for help. Hence, one is not alone; we are all one. In addition, the series title and logo is a nod to jack.org and its transformative vision and approach to mental health: “Traditional approaches to tackling the issue of mental health in Canada rarely reach outside the 1 in 5 Canadians who are affected by mental illness. Jack.org’s programs are designed reach all young people, the 5 in 5. We encourage and enable young people to better care for themselves and support their peers.” (https://www.jack.org/about)
The series will launch with a screening of the documentary Project Happiness on November 24th, 2016 from 5:00 – 7:30 pm. After the documentary, there will be a panel discussion with mental health advocates (TBA). Everyone is welcome to attend. Please see the poster for complete details, including how to reserve a ticket (admission is free).
