As expected, Let’s Talk Day this past Wednesday, January 27, was a great success. As mentioned in my previous post, York had the pleasure of welcoming Asha, AJ, Aspen and Jazz, four therapy dogs from St. John’s Ambulance, onto the campus for impromptu de-stress sessions in Vari Hall and the Scott Library. In the sparse moments when the furry helpers weren’t surrounded by students, we managed to snap some photos. Check ’em out:
Overall, it was a fun and informative day . . . the therapy dogs provided a great way to break the ice on the topic of mental health and hopefully helped spark long-term discussion.
How was your Let’s Talk Day? Did you spend time with the dogs? Or perhaps fill out a Let’s Talk testimonial in the RED Zone? Tweet your experience at @YorkUStudents.
