About the Session:
Too often, mental health interventions begin once symptoms have already been identified but the arts provide a unique and powerful way to address mental health stigma, teach warning signs, and open people to the idea of seeking support. This interactive session will feature short films from Art With Impact Canada’s (AWIC) ground-breaking OLIVE Film Collection to engage participants in a lively discussion about the role of art and non-linear learning tools in mental health.
Natalie Daley is a passionate advocate on the topic of mental health, using her lived experience and commitment to creating a more compassionate society guide her work. She is the driving force behind Art With Impact Canada (AWIC) and has spoken at over 20 AWIC workshops.
