Thrive Week

Thrive 2020/2021

This Winter, Thrive will be taking place in March to help prevent burnout and provide support at the end of term. While you may not feel like you are thriving right now, we want to help you get one step closer. 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.

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

Did you attend an event and want to share your thoughts? Use our Event Feedback Form. Do you have thoughts about Thrive as a whole? Use our Thrive Feedback Form. By providing feedback you can be entered to win some great prizes!

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.


We are trying new things every term and we want to hear what you liked or what we can do better next time. Use our Event Feedback Form to let us know your thoughts on a specific event you attended. Or if you would like to share your thoughts about Thrive in general, use our Thrive Feedback Form.

Have feedback regarding other mental health programming throughout the year? Whether it is a new event or workshop you woud like to see, or certain topics you would like to be covered, please let us know. Submit your ideas using our mental health suggestion box.
