The New National Standard Webinar

January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 1:00 EST – 2:00 PM EST

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), in collaboration with CSA Group (a global leader in standards development), has championed the development of the National Standard of Canada for Mental Health and Well-Being for Post-Secondary Students.  This voluntary Standard is the first of its kind in the world; it builds on the exceptional work of Canada’s post-secondary institutions and seeks to inspire further actions through principle-led approaches.  The MHCC has also designed a Starter Kit to support post-secondary institutions as they begin aligning with the Standard, as well as a Self-Assessment Tool so they can understand their strengths, gaps and opportunities for action.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will have:

  1. Increased their knowledge of the Standard and the available supportive resources, especially the Starter Kit and Self-Assessment Tool
  2. Increased their understanding of why assessment is key to informing mental health strategies
  3. Learned ideas for how the Standard can be used to enhance student mental health strategies/plans with the help of the Self-Assessment Tool
