New Student Mental Health resources

April 25th, 2024

In time for Mental Health Week, May 6 to 12, there is a new resource for student mental health.

The MHE Station (Station SME in French) is the place to go to support the mental health of college and university students. It provides access to a wealth of credible information and practical tools. There’s advice on managing stress, information on mental health, tips on maintaining healthy relationships, and more. Station SME also offers resources to strengthen your expertise and create study environments conducive to student well-being.

There is a video overview of the Station SME and you can explore staff resources here: Exploring themes - Station SME

Earth Weeks at Dawson 2024

April 24th, 2024

This year's Earth Weeks once again promoted well-being for our students and employees and brought back some favourite activities and events while introducing new ones.

On April 23, Kaye Francis led a cooking workshop, which was the crowd favourite.

"I wanted to inspire participants to bring out their inner chef," she said. Kaye, a trained French chef who likes to inject Caribbean influences into her cooking, presented couscous and suggested many different ways to use it or other grains as a base to create flavourful, healthy and satisfying meals. "People get stuck on recipes, I wanted to focus on methods," she said.

Couscous is a blank canvas and you can create different meals by adding vegetables, protein, and dressing/sauce. Here is Kaye's recipe for Italian or Greek couscous.
