The Best Practices Network in Canadian Higher Ed ( is pleased to announce the release of a paper, An Environmental Scan of Canadian Campus Mental Health Strategies (2019)

The purpose of this paper is to support colleges and universities in their institutional mental health and wellness strategy development, by reporting on a review of Canadian campus mental health strategies.  BP-Net conducted an environmental scan of existing post-secondary mental health strategies across Canada, from 2009 to 2019, and identified common and differing themes with respect to their development process, organizational structure, strategy components, key recommendations, and evaluation.  With this, we offer guiding principles and future directions that post-secondary administrators and practitioners may consider in their strategy development and review process.
