At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and this workshop will give you science-backed skills for working through mental health challenges and documenting your journey. We'll begin the workshop by customizing personal journals with collage materials, offering a simple way to visualize your thoughts and moods. Then, Claire Adams of the Community Writing Center will offer an overview of what mental health journaling can do for you, guiding you through several prompts that will help you get started on your path to wellbeing.

This workshop is also a fundraiser, and 10% of ticket sales will be donated to the Behavioral Health Innovation & Dissemination Center at the University of Utah, where new breakthroughs in mental health treatment are always being studied. We'll hold this workshop at the University of Utah's NEXUS Facility, and detailed instructions on parking and location will be sent two days prior to the event to help you get there.
