Tomorrow's Mind aims to be the mediator between opportunities and students interested in causes, research, careers and education of biomedical sciences, health, and wellness.
We want to encourage the will of our student community to have a positive impact in the causes students find authentically meaningful.
We've created a platform whose sole purpose was to help students find opportunities to immerse themselves in their passions while positively contributing to the world around us, in a way that students want to. Getting involve also means building towards a better future, being in a rewarding environment, growing, meeting new people, helping in the best way we can and gaining authentic experiences.
Student's mental health, what are our roles to play?
Tomorrow's Mind wishes above all health, well-being and of course, happiness to all the members of the student community at the University of Ottawa and everywhere else.
Taking care of your health, of how you feel, getting help if you need it ... That, too, is productive, but most of all, it's primordial.
