The Toronto Engineering Club of Speakers (TECS) is hosting a special event for our open house, a Panel Discussion on Mental Health and Wellness. We will also have a fun and interactive impromptu table topics session.
The aim of this panel discussion is to discuss the stresses and mental health issues facing engineering students and professionals and the resources available to them to help them cope. Our first set of panelists include an engineer and engineering student who will share their personal experiences on mental health and how they overcame challenges they faced. Our second set of panelists include experts in the field who conduct research on mental health and/or provide treatment. We also aim to destigmatize mental illnesses/disorders and foster a supportive community where we can openly discuss mental health issues in the same way we would for physical ailments. Join us in advocating mental wellness and discussing issues that affect us all in one way or another. Come see how Toastmasters is designed to help people develop their leadership and public speaking skills.
Dinner will be provided.
