Humber@TIFA — Resilience, Mattering & Belonging: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Mental Health & Well Being
27 Sep 2024 - 29 Sep 2024 • Toronto, Canada
Humber Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and the Toronto International Festival of Authors
The forthcoming interdisciplinary academic conference aims to be a groundbreaking convergence of scholars, educators, practitioners, and researchers, all unified in their dedication to advancing the understanding of mental health. The conference seeks to explore how people are coping, recovering but also still struggling following a globally experienced traumatic event. While open for proposals with a focus anywhere along the mental health spectrum, themes of interest are resilience; belonging, intergenerational trauma; addiction and recovery; psychopathology; and mental health in the arts, literature and popular culture. The concept of mattering is also a particular theme of interest, specifically recognizing its pivotal role in shaping the psychological landscapes of post-secondary learners. By bridging the domains of psychology, education, literature, and various related disciplines, this event aspires to forge a path toward understanding modern mental health challenges, while also enabling a more resilient and mentally healthy population.
