Digital Display: Mental Health Week

Friday, Jan 20, 2023

January 23-27 is Mental Health Week here at MacEwan! The theme for this year is "Self Care Isn't Selfish," and there are a number of events around campus for students, staff, and faculty to attend. For many people, reading IS self-care. If that sounds like you, we have curated a list of eBooks related to mental health for you to explore!
