The George Washington University's Division for Student Affairs is hosting an evening of community and connection at the GW Stronger Together Resource Fair from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24 in the University Student Center. This event, which will be held on USC's first floor, will point students to information and resources they need to help feel supported in times of conflict and crisis. Many representatives from a variety of campus offices will be available to answer questions and share resources, ranging from mental health services, safety and reporting.
There will be free food, giveaways, destress activities and more. Participating offices include Counseling and Psychological Services; Health Promotion and Education; Office for Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement; Title IX; Disability Support Services; Student Life; CARE Team; Student Rights and Responsibilities; GW Police Department; GW Dining; and more.
In addition, Project Blackbird, a non-profit dedicated to leading conversations about eating disorder recovery and destigmatizing mental health, will showcase its film, "Blackbird," at the event. GW students, faculty and staff can watch the film and engage with a speaker panel at the two film showings—one at 6 p.m. and one at 7:15 p.m.—in Betts Theatre. Campus and local partners will be tabling before and after the showings with additional resources and giveaways. Every attendee will receive a gift bag with items from LMNT, Gorjana, Red Bull and more.
Spots for the film are limited, and RSVPs are required for both sessions.
