Event Details:

Stanford is organizing a two-day conversation (February 3 and 4) on mental health and well-being for our entire campus community — students, postdocs, staff, and faculty. Through a series of workshops, roundtables, and presentations, we want to shine a light on mental health and well-being, dispel any stigmas associated with mental illness, and empower our community members with tools that will help them manage stress, build resilience, support others, and ultimately, thrive.

Let us know if you are coming (optional): RSVP
