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.
At the end of this session, participants will have:
Sandra Koppert – Director, Mental Health Advancement, Mental Health Commission of Canada
Amy Fogarty – Manager, Mental Health Advancement, Mental Health Commission of Canada
Andrew Szeto– University of Calgary, Technical Committee Member, Self-Assessment Tool Pilot Participant
Ted Power – College of the North Atlantic, Reference Group Member & Self-Assessment Tool Pilot Participant
