MEDLIFE Concordia is pleased to announce that this Fall, we will be collaborating with the United Nations Academic Impact and the Millennium Campus Network to work on our newest project designed to help children suffering from mental illnesses to cope with their current situations. Our goal is to de-stigmatize all mental disorders and create a comfortable and tolerant environment for these individuals.
The Millennium Fellowship is a semester-long leadership development program that convenes, challenges, and celebrates student leadership for UN goals. Only 11% of the campuses were selected to host Fellows in the global pilot this fall. 530 extraordinary Millennium Fellows have been selected on 30 campuses across 13 nations to participate this year. Leading campus cohorts have been selected from every region of the globe. Millennium Fellows will take action to help make the Sustainable Development Goals and United Nations Academic Impact Principles reality. Fellows’ Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide.
We hope to raise at least $5,000 to fund a local initiative targeting mental health, to facilitate their services and spread awareness on such issues. With your participation in our fundraisers, MEDtalks and other initiatives, we can surely reach our goal.
