The Zenétudes program, founded by UQAM professor and researcher Diane Marcotte, Director of the Research Laboratory on Youth Mental Health in Schools, offers 3-part, in-class and small-group workshops to develop student mental health awareness and knowledge of strategies to prevent mental health issues. Zenétudes is currently offered in 10 CÉGEPs across Québec. The donation of $250,000 each from Bell Let’s Talk and The Rossy Family Foundation will make it possible to support the extension of the program to more institutions. The funds will also be used to evaluate the implementation of Zenétudes at participating CÉGEPs and its impact on student mental health.
