Last week was an exciting time in the world of Renison’s KDE Hub, as they held their first annual KDE Hub Symposium Jan 25-27! Though originally envisioned as an in-person event, the symposium was fully virtual and hosted over 120 participants from seven time zones and 11 Canadian provinces and territories. Participants included representation from all 20 projects funded by the Mental Health Promotion Innovation Fund (MHP-IF), the Public Health Agency of Canada, the KDE Hub extended family (Secretariat, Hub Resource Collaborative, and consultants), and invited guests who share interests with the MHP-IF, such as health equity, cultural safety, and social determinants of mental health.

Walking in two worlds

Renison Social Development Studies (SDS) 2016 alumna Jaydum Hunt is an accomplished Master’s student, studying at the University of Waterloo in Industrial Organizational Psychology. While at Renison, she specialized in Individual Well-being and Social Work as part of her degree in SDS. Jaydum’s original plan was to pursue Social Work, but after being accepted to the program, and taking a year off, her path took her in a different, more personal, direction. Her undergraduate degree was completed while she was a mother to one, and she is now completing a Master’s degree as a mother of two!
