Psych prof and students to promote mental self-care to new Canadians

A team from the University of Windsor will present two workshops on “Mental Wellness and Self-Care” during Health Access Day today — Tuesday, April 25 — at the Caboto Club.

Presented by the Community Partners for Multicultural Health, the event promises a series of interactive workshops and health promotion activities for refugees, immigrants and other newcomers to Canada.

Professor Ben Kuo and his doctoral students in clinical psychology will offer their workshops as an outreach and service project. Each has between 60 and 80 registrants; a student volunteer will provide simultaneous translation into Arabic.

Exhibitors from a variety of agencies will provide information on support services to stay physically and mentally healthy, and prevent disease and illness. The day’s activities are free and open to the public, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2175 Parent Avenue.
