Formed through a student initiative at the University of Toronto in September 2013, Grad Minds is now officially recognized as the Mental Health Advisory Committee of the University of Toronto Graduate Students' Union (UTGSU).
What we do
We promote well-being and provide mental health education through programs, initiatives, and events, with a focus on developing psychological resilience, personal skill development, self-care practices, and de-stigmatizing mental health problems.
Why we do what we do
Graduate students face unique challenges that are not often addressed. At this time, there is a lack of peer support services and education programs aimed at graduate students' mental health on campus.
Gabrielle’s Zoom Power Yoga classes with Grad Minds are Power Yoga vinyasa classes, with a short meditation at the beginning or end. These 60-minute classes allow you to step out of your day and onto your mat for an hour of movement, mindfulness, and fun! All levels welcome!
Drop-in knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and general crafting! Join any time between 6 and 8 on Mondays for a relaxing time with fellow grad students. We talk about everything and anything while creating wonderful things.
Elemental Magazine is an initiative aimed at promoting mental health awareness on campus and advancing our current knowledge on mental health through an engaging communication platform. All articles are available at elementalmag.ca!
Issue 10 now available!
All UofT graduate students are welcome to attend our meetings where they can share their ideas on how we, as a community, can improve graduate student wellbeing during these times.
