Welcome to Concordia’s Wellbeing hub.

Small daily things like going to school and hanging out with friends, can have an impact on your mental health. We believe that practicing self-care and having open conversations about mental health, allow all of us to better manage our wellbeing. The Concordia Wellbeing Hub is not only designed to help you - it will help you know what to do if a friend opens up to you about their mental health. 

We have created a 3-part series on how you can improve your own mental wellbeing, to help you thrive in all areas of your life. The series is presented by experienced Life Coach Helen Zeida.
