Community Education and Outreach

From time to time, graduate students in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Waterloo provide education and outreach activities to the community. These may include workshops and talks on topics that are of clinical relevance, such as self-compassion, promoting healthy relationships, and managing anxiety. 

The purpose of these Community Education activities is to share research findings and practical applications in order to reduce stigma surrounding mental health and to promote mental wellness.
