 In recognition of this fantastic event, TransLink invites elementary and high school students (with a GoCard) to ride free on all TransLink services during October 5-9 International Walk to School Week. Adults accompanying students will still need to pay their fare during IWALK week.

On the Way To School / 

Sur le chemin de l'école

In many parts of the world, getting to school is a challenge in itself, and this globetrotting documentary shows us what some young people must face simply to make it to the classroom. In Kenya, Jackson and his sister cross paths with dangerous elephants; in Patagonia, Carlito and his little sister ride a horse over 18 kilometres each way through treacherous terrain; in Morocco, Zahira and her friends trek across mountains and even resort to hitchhiking to get to class on time; and in India, Samuel is pushed through swamplands in a homemade wheelchair by his younger brothers. Touching and inspiring, On the Way to School celebrates the strength, determination and courage of these young students willing to brave great obstacles in order to pursue their education.

The inaugural South Asian Mental Health Community Conference, hosted by South Asian Mental Health Action and Awareness (SAMHAA) Society, will be the first event of its kind, bringing together multidisciplinary professionals, agencies, and community members. The event aims to reduce stigma and misconceptions around mental health issues, and facilitate education and discussion within the community.

SAMHAA, meaning “time & circumstances” in Punjabi & Hindi, is a BC non-profit society founded in January, 2011 to build bridges between those affected by mental health issues, advocates, and resource providers through ongoing outreach, advocacy, education and discourse. “Mental illness affects 1 in 4 people worldwide regardless of culture or country,” explains Dr. Shimi Kang, the first keynote speaker at the event. “South Asian specific cultural issues can impact the presentation, course, and management of illness for affected individuals and their families. SAMHAA’s efforts will provide much needed awareness and key information about mental health and wellbeing for South Asians within their own cultural context.” Workshops on various topics will take place throughout the day in English, Punjabi and Hindi by leading South Asian mental health professionals, concluding with an afternoon keynote by Dr. Gulzar Cheema.

The event is hosted in partnership with The BC Mental Health Foundation, Surrey School District and Sources Community Resource Centre Society, and will feature information tables from over 15 local agencies. Complimentary lunch will be provided. Pre-registration is required.
