This event is part of Ryerson’s first annual Mental Health & Wellness Conference (MH&WC) created through a collaboration between Success Without Stress (SWS) and Students for Mental Awareness, Support & Health (SMASH). It is taking place within a week of Bell Let’s Talk Day and is meant to start a public discussion on how to cultivate, monitor and control wellness in the fields of engineering and architecture known for high burnout.
