This episode we’re talking with two University of Guelph undergrads: Brooke and Darian. Brooke and Darian are both student athletes and co-leads of UofG’s SAMHI (Student Athlete Mental Health Initiative). We hear what it’s been like transitioning from high school, to university, to pandemic life and how that’s affected their sports, schooling, and of course mental health. This episode we hear about several helpful UofG resources, including SAMHI, the Student Support Network, and the Indigenous Student Centre.
