Ask a question to experts about mental health


UBC Okanagan psychologi­sts will talk about mental health on the eve of Bell Let’s Talk Day.

A mental health panel will convene online tonight at 6. “Every person has been affected in some way by COVID-19,” said Lesley Lutes, a psychology professor and director of UBCO’s Centre for Obesity and Wellbeing Research Excellence, in a news release.

“Our new normal isn’t normal, and it’s OK to not be feeling like our usual selves today or any day.”

Lutes, joined by UBC and community colleagues, will take questions from the public. The 90-minute virtual session will cover a number of topics including COVID19, social media, substance misuse and prioritizi­ng self-care. People can register and submit questions anonymousl­y through Search for virtual mental health panel.
