Spotlight on Care: Creating as an Antidote to Depression

12:00-1:00pm Wednesday, March 4, 2020 The Commons

Presented by The Commons and the Center for Compassionate and Sustainable Communities, in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring, Office of the Provost, the School of Social Welfare, Watkins Health Services, the College Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the School of Public Affairs and Administration, the KU Public Management Center, and KU Counseling and Psychological Services.

Each Wednesday at noon at The Commons, the series will feature a different topic related to well-being and care and include a component of guided practice. The series aims to devote time to considering the ways we practice care as individuals, in communities, and as a campus, full of resources to broaden understanding. It will highlight a variety of aspects of well-being, with special attention to the expectations of higher education.

On March 4, the event will focus on the Too Tired Project and its success at using photography as a coping mechanism for dealing with depression, featuring artist Tara Wray.
