About Healthy Campus Conversations


You are invited . . . . . . . to  join us for conversations about healthy living!

College is a transitional time and focus on well-being is often overshadowed by school work and many students describe being overwhelmed by all the newness and pressures. In the fall of 2012 Selkirk College embarked on a pilot program on healthy eating and living. With funding provided by a provincial organization called Healthy Minds/ Healthy Campuses  we  cooked, ate together and explored what it means to stay well while being a college student.

And then, in Januray 2014, with funding from Columbia Basin Trust Youth Grants http://www.cbt.org/  we started Dinner Basket Conversations where groups can cook and eat a meal together and have a facilitated discussion that explores experiences and values around substance use.

Building a culture of  belonging and well-being,  one conversation at a time.

Now, we are delighted to invite the post-secondary communities around B.C. to join the conversation.

Send us your reflections, articles, recipes, videos and suggestions on how to stay balanced and healthy as a student!
