Explore how science is helping us understand and improve our mental and physical health.

  • Create your own abstract expressionist cityscapes and explore how the world around us affects our wellbeing with a unique drawing class hosted by artist Daksha Patel and researcher Rhiannon Thompson
  • For Black History Month, look at the technological and social support available for young black men dealing with mental illness
