The concept of mental security was born of our team’s observation that the perception of mental health is unfortunately biased in our society and often perceived in a pejorative way.
Our idea behind the village’s presentation is to combine security and health.
Cybersecurity preserves the integrity of individuals, states and organizations, and Hackfest participants regularly witness the devastating effects of the lack or absence of security.
The negligence of decision-makers who hesitate to implement protection systems has negative effects on our world, just as our carelessness and refusal to see reality and take care of our mental health have negative effects on our lives.
Mental health problems will affect 1 in 5 Quebecers during their lifetime. Half of these problems are directly linked to working life. The Village has several objectives: to offer participants a moment of relaxation, to experience notions of mental security through the past and the future, and to gather information that will be used to develop tools accessible via the Lixi platform, in 2024 to include a Mental Security module.
This year, we’re going to get participants to question their mental vulnerability through the discovery of certain perceptions, interpretations and views of the ego, by experimenting with different concepts through the past and the future.
We use the theme of “Back to the Future” to illustrate the consequences of our illusions, choices, actions or inactions in a world of insecurity and stress.
- Put stress on PAUSE. You’re already helping society with your talents, we’re offering you a moment of relaxation and want to get to know you better. Experiment and get out of the virtual world… time is on your side!
