VIU Thrive Week

VIU Student Affairs and Human Resources are partnering to host the first annual THRIVE Week October 1-5, 2018, and we need your help!

What is THRIVE Week?

THRIVE is a week-long series of events for the entire VIU community focused on building positive mental health.

THRIVE is a way of thinking and acting that promotes positive mental wellbeing and resilience.

THRIVE is an opportunity to join others on campus to create the conditions that support positive mental well-being for our campus community.

What kind of activities fit into THRIVE week?

These can be events you are already planning that have the benefit of promoting positive mental health and are cross-promoted during THRIVE week.

Set up a booth, host a workshop, lecture, social activity or active session.  Be a participant in the Health and Wellness Fair....be creative!

How can you get involved?

There are three ways you can participate:

  1. Be a Special Event Partner--Plan and promote a special Thrive event for students, faculty & staff, or all members of the VIU community.

  2. Be a THRIVE Partner--Promote your regularly scheduled event or activity as a "Thrive" event or host an event for a specific audience such as your club or department.

  3. Be a Promotional Partner--help promote THRIVE by emailing your groups or networks, putting up posters, sharing on social media and generally encouraging attendance at events.

What next?

  1. Let us know you're interested by emailing Thrive@viu.ca and we will follow up to discuss how you would like to be involved.

  2. Attend an information session to learn more on Friday May 11, 2018 from 12-1pm in Bldg 250/Rm 402.

  3. Watch for the online registration form and pay attention to future opportunities to promote THRIVE.
