Mental health project receives Movember funding

The Movember Foundation has awarded $150,000 to the Man/Art/Action project co-led by Tim Laidler, director of the Veterans Transition Network, and education professor Dr. Marvin Westwood with co-researcher Dr. George Belliveau.

Military men can experience high levels of mental distress and are unlikely to seek professional help. The project’s studio art and theatre interventions are meant to help them reinterpret their experiences in positive ways.
