“Transitioning to Post-Secondary Education (PSE) can be both exciting and terrifying considering the various outcomes this journey can offer. You may have a great deal of confidence months before your first day of classes, but after the first week you are questioning whether you have made the best decision. Recognizing that there are limited opportunities in high school to consider what is necessary in preparing for this transition and begin assessing the skills and strategies that may need to be learnt and accessed to transition successfully to PSE.

Preparing for entry/re-entry to in-person classroom learning will look differently at every institution. What will the new normal look like? How do I create a safe physical and mental space for optimal learning in an unfamiliar environment?

Through a virtual webinar format participants who complete this 75 minute course can expect to build additional skills and strategies that will improve:

  • ways in creating meaningful connections within the campus community
  • responding to the stressors that come with balancing studies, relationships, and employment
  • addressing self-advocacy, self-compassion and empowering behaviour
  • learning and navigating campus mental health and well-being services
  • responding to the challenges of being a student (moving away from home, finances, academic pressures, deadlines, increased freedoms, more opportunity to use substances, etc.)
  • identifying competing feelings and finding ways to process them in a safe place
  • understanding of the value of peer support

Participants can expect to hear from current PSE students who have made this transition and will share their experiences and in looking back would there be things that they would have approached differently. You can expect to leave with a digital toolkit of practical resources and how self-care can change how you treat yourself and others. Lastly, a high level overview of evidence-based mental health and well-being literacy that addresses the impact of stigma, challenges myths and the opportunities that exist to build greater resiliency. Throughout this interactive webinar, you will be invited to be curious and kind to yourself, reducing the critical thinking that can create barriers to being your best self.”
