She/Her/HersI Caught FeelsThe dating world can be overwhelming, especially for someone starting out with no experience. There are no instructions or guides for relationships and it can be extra stressful for someone who must consider their mental health. Mental Health is a tough and touchy subject and often, we may feel lost when it comes to maneuvering towards healthy and positive relationships. Conversations about mental disorders can feel shameful and stigmatized, but these conversations are important to building connections, feeling supported, and understanding one another. This workshop will examine the world of dating, relationships, and having a partner, through the eyes of mental health, to provide more insight and clarity. This workshop hopes to help you recognize the differences between healthy and unhealthy behaviors within intimate relationships.Lecture, discussions, and activityTigana Le

Jimmy Vu Patel-NguyenREFUGENE Project (www.refugene.com)He/Him/HisRecord Family Stories.
Why and How.
How many of our parents’ stories have been untold? What moments have shaped our family’s lives that we know nothing about?

After my dad survived a heart attack, I started recording more meaningful conversations with him asking about his life as a soldier, refugee, father, etc. That decision changed my life. Hearing my parents' stories gave me a deeper connection to our family history and a new appreciation for my cultural roots. I recently became a father, and I can think of nothing more valuable to give my son than our family’s stories.

If you’ve ever wanted to have this type of conversation with your parents, then this workshop will give you structure to ask about their life’s experiences. Additionally, we explore the many ways to creatively express and adapt culture for the benefit of future generations. You will hear a snippet of my father’s recorded story, have one-on-one discussions, and walk away with a story kit handout to help capture your own family’s stories.
