Thrive Week

Thrive 2020/2021

Thrive will continue to run remotely in Winter 2021! We are excited to continue this program virtually and build positive mental health from home.

This Winter, Thrive will be taking place in March to help prevent burnout and provide support at the end of term. You can participate in Thrive remotely March 1 to 5 and access even more virtual resources, workshops, and support which will be available for the weeks to follow Thrive. This way, more students will be able to participate in Thrive throughout the month of March.

Please note that as of November 1 all links are no longer active for the Fall calendar however stay tuned for more information on Thrive in the Winter semester!

All events are free and registration is not required unless noted below. Note that all students are welcome to attend these events.

About Thrive

Thrive is a weeklong series of free events to build positive mental health on campus. Thrive began at the University of British Columbia in 2009. Laurier adopted the program in 2017 and now runs Thrive every Fall and Winter term on both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses. Thrive is overseen by Laurier's Mental Health Advisory Committee, and incorporates student input and feedback when planning the week.

If you are interested in collaborating with Thrive Week, contact Nathan Reeve on the Waterloo campus, and contact Sarah Syrett on the Brantford campus.
