What: Students, campus practitioners, community partners, and other stakeholders will come together to hear from insightful speakers to instill our shared purpose in building healthy campus communities.

Registration will open on November 12, 2015! Details on travel, accommodation, and the program will be available at www.campuswellness.ca/wellnessumit. Please note that space will be limited.
Call for Proposals: Student leaders, you will have a chance to share your SA's work at the Wellness Summit! To highlight ACMHI's role in improving mental health on campuses across Alberta, we will soon be asking SAs to submit a proposal for 15-minute presentations at the Wellness Summit. For those who are interested, stay tuned and check your email often for more details!
Travel Bursaries: As this is a student-led conference, attendance of students is critical. To remove financial barriers to students’ participation, a bursary will be available to students to cover the cost of travel. Details will be available on November 12, 2015.
Opportunity: For organization or groups that are interested in sharing information about their initiatives or work in the mental health sector, you will have an opportunity to participate. The Wellness Summit will host a Knowledge Market throughout the event. If you would like to reserve a table or Poster-Board, please contact Jessica Turowski at 780-756-4500, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to share this invite to interested stakeholders on your campus and in your community, as we welcome the valuable contribution of campus and community leaders to the discussion on post-secondary mental health.
