Special Events Partners

Special Event Partners promote positive mental health on campus by planning, organizing, and promoting a mental health event during Thrive week.

Step 1: Choose your audience

  • Students
  • Staff & Faculty
  • All UBC community members

Step 2: Create an event

Educate your community about positive mental health and what it means to Thrive (dialogue, discussions, films, panels, research).

Develop specific skills that can be used to build and maintain positive health (creative expression, new routines, goal setting, role playing).

Support individual self-care and resiliency (highlight champions, storytelling, paths to success).

Step 3: Get the word out

Use the Thrive Planning Toolkit and Communications Toolkit to help make your event a success.
