The Episcopal Campus Ministry will host Kat Folk, Episcopal chaplain at Georgia Tech and Oglethorpe University and suicide prevention counselor. Folk majored in Industrial Engineering at Tech and holds an MBA from Brenau University, an MS in Counseling from Richmont Graduate University, and is expected to complete a Doctorate of Education from Creighton University in 2021. She will speak on mental health and the importance of self-care in college and steps we can take to recognize warning signs in our friends and peers.
Folk is passionate about breathing hope into people by acting out her baptismal covenants of teaching, fellowship, meals, prayer, forgiveness, service, striving for justice and respecting the dignity of every human being. She hopes to reach those college students who have fallen through the cracks, desperately needing physical, spiritual and emotional help and do it in such a way that stigmas are eliminated, progress is made and peace is found.
Mental Health Moments will take place Wednesday, February 26, at 7 p.m. in A&S 338. Light refreshments will be provided.
