“I’m Okay” Film Screening & Mental Health Panel

November 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25
I'm Okay Screening

Have you ever been through a bad breakup where you hated the world AND yourself?

This film explores what that’s like. It’s an anti-romantic comedy by Toronto’s very own mathematician turned filmmaker Curt Jaimungal (BSc 2013 Innis). If you’re expecting a v-day rom com with mental health fluff as filler, this event is not for you.

We’re going to watch the film, talk about mental health, and think about what we as Torontonians need to do to support each other and do better.

Let’s keep the conversation on mental health going beyond #BellLetsTalk!

Graduate students and the University of Toronto community are encouraged to attend.
