Second-year IMP students to talk mental health in latest Let’s Talk Science presentation


Four second-year IMP students – Amy Kim, Laila Drabkin, Kaity Lalonde, and Brianna Crighton – will talk about mental health in the latest Let’s Talk Science seminar.

“Mental health is a reality for everyone, whether it affects you or someone you know,” said Kaity Lalonde. “Despite this, it still carries a social stigma – people don’t like talking about their issues. But that’s exactly what we need to do. And we’re promoting that by having an open, informative, non-judgmental talk about mental health in general.”

When: Monday, January 15, 2018
Where: Medical Sciences Building, Room 150, UVic
Time: 1:00pm to 2:30pm

You’ll learn about the past, present, and future of mental health and delve into important questions, including:

  • What are the myths and truths about depression?
  • What are the differences between schizophrenia, psychosis, and bipolar disorder?
  • What is a personality disorder?

The Let’s Talk Science seminar series is overseen by Dr. Jane Gair, Associate Teaching Professor in both the UVic Division of Medical Sciences and the UBC Island Medical Program
