ABOUT THE UNION

CUPE 2626 represents thousands of Teaching and Research Assistants, Markers, Tutors, Lab Monitors, Demonstrators, Proctors, Lifeguards and Residence Life Workers at the University of Ottawa. CUPE 2626 is a local section of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (or “CUPE National”), the largest union in Canada, with over 680,000 members across the country. CUPE 2626 was formed in 1997 following a unionization drive organized by TAs and RAs in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering to fight against the arbitrary nature of contract allocation and pay rates in different departments.

Mental Health in Academia

CUPE 2626 is hosting a presentation on mental health in academia on Friday, January 13, 2023, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

The presentation will be held bi-modally, both on Zoom and in FSS 1005. There will be snacks and refreshments provided.

Registration is required to participate. 

The event will be presented by Jennifer Trewin (Jenny), a registered psychotherapist who has been working for over 3 years in the field. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English Literature from Trent University and a Master’s in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. In her work with adults and adolescents, she focuses on helping others to understand and accept their emotions and behaviours, so they can better process and tolerate difficult emotions and live their lives more intentionally.

The presentation will cover topics such as what factors contribute to the mental health of students, how differing circumstances can affect students in distinct ways, and tips on how to take care of your own mental health as well as ways to support others in crisis.
