Dr. Facundo provides space in her lectures for people to discuss relevant issues in a judgement-free way. We discussed the sexual assault incidents at Western briefly and she makes it clear that we have the space to talk to her if we need to or want to.
Mental health is the condition of possibility for a meaningful life.
Mental health is embedded in my pedagogy. It informs the necessary but contained role that anxiety plays in the adventure of learning. Without pedagogical containments, all we have is anxiety without learning.
