"Hi, my name is Ilyas Khamis and I am a "second year student in the Social Service Worker program at the Trafalgar campus of Sheridan College. While here I have been able to engage with the mental well-being of the Sheridan community. I know that college brings about a lot of new challenges, and that traditionally it may be hard to find a place where we can speak about our emotions openly, so I started up and am president of the Sheridan Mental Health Peer Support Group. Another concern that came to my attention while speaking with students was the lack of interdisciplinary meetings, and I believe that starting a SSU virtual community for all students could help facilitate connections.
