Mental health and well-being are critically important for our campus community. Before the global pandemic, studies have shown a considerable increase in mental health challenges worldwide, and the need to address mental health has primarily been a growing trend in universities. Statistically, one in four of us faces mental health challenges, and all of us are impacted in one way or another, either personally or through family and friends. In the last two years, COVID-19 severely impacted the mental health of university students and communities and raised our awareness of the need to address these challenges.
Join Hania Sholkamy '85, '89, associate professor at AUC's Social Research Center; Dr. Nasser Loza, president of the World Federation for Mental Health and director of The Behman hospital; and Fayrouz Ibrahim '21, social researcher and graduate student in AUC's sociology-anthropology program, as they walk us through the current trends and new challenges to ending stigma and finding community solutions. The workshop's purpose is to start a conversation and brainstorm areas on which we need to focus.
