What would your day look like if every day was Mental Health Day? It’s important to recognize that for many people, the holiday season can be a challenging time.

“TAKING MY CAMERA OUT AND GOING FOR WALKS.”

“WEEKLY THERAPY SESSIONS.”

“GOING TO THE MOVIE THEATRE ALONE.”

“VOLUNTEERING.”

MEET CONNOR HASTEY-PALINDAT

Community Engagement Coordinator // @CPALINDAT


Hey there! My name is Connor and I am on the Community Engagement team at URBANYEG. Outside of URBANYEG, I work at Startup Edmonton on the Student Program team, connecting students with our startup community. Since I graduated I’ve had a lot more time on my hands to get involved in the community, going to events, and seeing all the awesome stuff the creative people in Edmonton can do. This is why I joined URBANYEG, so I could do my small part in helping the community grow and stay engaged!
