Pathways to Ending Mental Health Oppression

Lunch & Learn Series sponsored by the OSU Campus Coalition Builders (CCB)

Thursday, October 24, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM


This session will focus on creating pathways to end mental health oppression. Participants will be given a brief introduction to the topic, then work through in a group to deconstruct three unique scenarios of mental health oppression. The goal will be to give each participant an opportunity to identify personal triggers around mental health, understand both the stigma and self-stigma concept of mental health, and engage in a dialogue on using a “community of care” ethic that compels change, in regards to mental health oppression. Facilitated by Amy Thomson and Michael Henthorne.

This lunch and learn session is open to the public at the OSU Women's Center; noon-1:30pm; seating is limited. No pre-registration is required. Requests for accommodations related to disability may be requested by contacting jodi.nelson@oregonstate.edu or calling 541-737-0715 no later than October 14.
