About the Webinar

Feeling unmotivated? Stressed? Anxious? Overwhelmed? If you answered yes to any of these questions you aren’t alone. According to Michigan Medicine, college students are more prone to anxiety and depression than the greater populace. A fact which has been amplified by the isolation and additional stressors caused by the pandemic.

This webinar will provide you with an understanding of the signs of deteriorating mental health, so you are better equipped to identify them in yourself as well as family and friends. Expert speaker and registered Psychotherapist Candice Hamilton-Miller will discuss relevant stressors including learning from home, feeling isolated, and post grad identity. Webinar attendees will also learn tips and tricks to manage anxiety and depression, ensuring that their mental health isn’t running the show.


  • Understand the importance of self-care and mental wellness in dealing with anxiety, depression, and pandemic induced pressures
  • Learn the tools to recognize and manage unhealthy behaviours and coping mechanisms
  • Learn important self-care habits that can improve your physical and mental wellbeing
  • The opportunity to talk to registered psychotherapist Candice Hamilton-Miller and be informed on sources of support
