Calm Rooms and Bell Let’s Talk Events
Out of the ongoing feedback from students, staff and faculty about a need for more spaces on campus where all can connect and relax, along with the opportunity to apply for the Mindful Campus Grant in 2019, came a pilot project consisting of pop-up ‘wellness spaces’ to be used for a variety of activities, workshops, and other purposes. Partnering with the existing Bell Let’s Talk events, three wellness spaces were enjoyed by all during the week of January 27-31, 2020 alongside creative workshops, resilience training and mindful gatherings.
